CHICAGO — While union leaders at Unite Here, which represents Hyatt Hotels employees, are calling for a global boycott of the hotel chain following a long-standing dispute in the U.S. between the two entities, Hyatt has responded with a full-page ad in The Washington Post.
“The Unite Here campaign is not about creating a better workplace at Hyatt hotels. It is an attempt to boost union membership at non-union Hyatt hotels through card check, a non-democratic and often-intimidating process for workers,” reads an official letter from the Chicago-based company, which includes text from the ad published in the Post.
