Informational picketing. On August 31st, 2009 Hyatt fired the entire housekeeping departments of its three Boston area hotels. Many of the fired immigrant housekeepers had worked at their hotels for over 20 years. Some Hyatt workers claim they were required to train their replacements and reported that their managers told them that the temp workers would only be used to cover vacations and weekends.
