Hyatt Housekeepers Walk Out on Job (But Just for a Little Bit)
Just remember that a certain someone makes this bed look so good.
Things are getting dirty in Chicago at Hyatt Hotels. Nearly 400 housekeepers staged a three-hour work "stoppage" yesterday at the Hyatt Regency on Wacker Drive. The housekeepers, spurred by employee union Unite Here Local 1, were protesting their growing workload (specifically with hotel bedding) and this little thing called an expired contract.
Yup, over 6,000 hotel employees at 31 hotels in Chicago have been working without a contract since last August. We just hope this issue ends better than it did in Boston where Hyatt Hotels there had all the housekeepers train their replacements before effectively firing them.
For now, the housekeepers have been told by Unite Here Local 1 to return to work but this is definitely not over. We just wonder what Lady Gaga song might be used next.
