All housekeepers affected by August staff reductions at the three Hyatt hotels in Boston will be offered new full-time positions in the Boston market.
Hyatt Hotels released the following statement in response to the governor’s boycott threat:
“We are very disappointed by the Governor’s decision to threaten a boycott of our hotels since it directly threatens the 600 associates who work in Hyatt properties and who live and work in Massachusetts at a time when businesses and individuals are cutting back on travel during the worst economic period we have seen in decades,” said Phil Stamm, General Manager of Hyatt Regency Boston. “We do not understand why the Governor is putting more Massachusetts jobs at risk instead of working with us to find jobs for employees affected by the realities of these unprecedented economic challenges.”
We are announcing today the formation of a task force to provide additional support to the 98 Boston‐area Hyatt employees affected by the recent restructuring of the hotels’ housekeeping services.
