UNITE HERE is facing major challenges with Hyatt Hotels. Hyatt has taken the lead in its attempts to weaken union standards across the United States and Canada. Hyatt has also refused to permit non-union workers to have a fair process to unionize. On August 31, 2009, Hyatt fired their entire non-union housekeeping staff in 3 Boston area hotels and replaced them with minimum wage subcontracted workers.
Earlier this year, workers in 15 cities staged demonstrations outside Hyatt hotels from Boston to Honolulu, from Miami to Vancouver. In September 2010, workers walked out on strike at five Hyatt hotels demanding that Hyatt negotiate fair contracts.
Hyatt’s actions have made it clear that they are committed to making difficult, dangerous and low paying hotel jobs worse.
