Today Might Be a Little Rough if You're Staying at the Park Hyatt Chicago
If you're checking into the Park Hyatt Chicago, you might not get the welcome you hoped for. That's because hotel workers from the Unite Here Local 1 union will be striking in front of the hotel for better working conditions for hotel housekeepers.
Apparently Hyatt Hotels is the last major hotel chain in Chicago to agree to a deal with the union. In fact, over a year ago in May, a few hundred Hyatt employees walked out on their jobs in protest. But that was only for a few hours while today looks like it will be an all-day thing.
Hyatt's also got the same problem today in other cities too, nine to be exact including Boston, where two years ago 100 Hyatt employees were suddenly fired. Hopefully, Hyatt and hotel workers in Chicago can kiss and makeup, or at least come to an agreement on a contract, very soon.
