No More Subcontracting!

On April 26 Local 26 member and former Hyatt housekeeper Wanda Rosario demanded the Cambridge Licensing Commission require that hotels directly employ housekeepers rather than subcontracting them, as 3 Hyatts in Boston and Cambridge did in 2009.

Local 26 members along with former Hyatt housekeepers and housemen packed the room to hear a series of speakers explain how the use of temporary and outsourced workers is bad for guests and bad for the community.
