Hundreds picket Hyatt HQ, protesting threats to cancel healthcare

December 15, 2011

Chicago, IL – Hundreds are picketing at Hyatt's global headquarters today in protest of Hyatt's proposal to strip health insurance from Hyatt workers in Chicago after more than two years of contract negotiations. Bargaining hit a turning point in late November after Hyatt threatened to cut off health benefits unless workers give up their fight and abandon their boycotts. Unless Hyatt withdraws its threat, thousands in Chicago could lose health insurance at the end of February.
