THIS AND THAT
FROM THE SEATTLE TIMES:
Hyatt Hotels said the nearly 100 housekeepers laid off from its three Boston hotels will be offered new full-time jobs, with health coverage and the same pay. The housekeepers had been fired by Hyatt and replaced with lower paid workers. (What a familiar tactic, eh). The announcement Friday came after Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick urged state employees to stop doing business with the hotels unless the workers were rehired.
Boston taxi drivers also threatened to boycott Hyatt Hotel in support of the housekeepers.
After all these years the struggle at Big Mountain continues.
