Bring Back the Hyatt 100

On August 31, 2009, Hyatt fired its longtime housekeeping staff at its three Boston-area hotels. Many of the fired housekeepers worked for their hotels for over 20 years. Many were required to train their replacements before being fired. Their replacements are being paid minimum wage.

Profiting from misery

They had a demonstration outside the downtown Hyatt the other day, to commemorate the anniversary of the firing of 98 housekeepers at Hyatt hotels in and around Boston.... Wanda Rosario was standing on the sidewalk outside the Hyatt. She suffered more than the indignity of losing her housekeeping job of 23 years there; she unwittingly trained her replacement, a woman who is being paid a lot less to do a lot more. Read more.

Hundreds Protest on Anniversary of Hyatt 100 Firings

September 2, 2010

BOSTON - The Hyatt 100 and hundreds of their Boston supporters rallied today to mark the one year anniversary of Hyatt firing their entire housekeeping staff at the three Boston area Hyatt hotels. The rally is part of a nationwide wave of demonstrations, with thousands protesting Hyatt's mistreatment of its employees.

The Hyatt 100 were fired after being tricked into training their own replacements. Many of the former housekeepers worked for Hyatt for more than two decades, and dozens continue to struggle to support their families while Hyatt refuses to reinstate them.

"Hyatt said we were fired because the recession was hurting their business," said Lucine Williams. "Now we know that's just an excuse to make more money and hand out big bonuses while our families continue to struggle."

"...Surely there is some way to retain the jobs for your housekeeping staffs, as other hotels have done, and to work with them to help the company meet its current challenges, rather than tossing them out unceremoniously to fend for themselves while the people they trained take their jobs at barely livable wages."

- MA Governor Deval Patrick
