Union housekeepers announce global boycott of Hyatt

Via email and votehyattworst.org (my emphasis and paragraphing):

Dear Friends,

Housekeepers nationwide need your help. … [T]his week Hyatt housekeepers are launching a global boycott of Hyatt. Please take two seconds to support them by voting Hyatt the Worst Hotel Employer in America.

Why is Hyatt the worst?

  • Hyatt has replaced career housekeepers with temp workers earning minimum wage.
  • Hyatt housekeepers have heavy workloads that can lead to debilitating pain and injuries.
  • Hyatt has fired women shortly after they have spoken out about abuse and indignities at work.
  • And Hyatt even turned heat lamps on workers protesting these conditions during a brutal Chicago heat wave.

Worldwide, we are calling on five million people to take a stand and Vote Hyatt Worst. By joining together, we will urge Hyatt to change its ways.

I offer this in the interest of keeping you well informed. This is happening, with or without you. If you click, it happens with you.

In case you’ve forgotten, Rule 2 of an Effective Progressive Coalition:

Members of the Coalition have each others’ back.

Not that you would forget…
