Religious & civic leaders: “End intimidation & surveillance at Wyndham Boston hotel”
Workers at the Wyndham hotel located across the street from Massachusetts General Hospital have been public with demands for stronger protection while cleaning rooms used by hospital patients.
The hotel settled with the National Labor Relations Board in December over worker complaints they’d faced surveillance and were offered money and benefits to stop organizing.
Rabbi Barbara Penzner of the Temple Hillel B’nai Torah synagogue, Father Philip C. Jacobs, and a representative of Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley returned to the Boston Wyndham hotel Thursday to speak with management about these concerns.
The hotel also faces proposed fines of $12,000 from OSHA for alleged violations related to worker safety.
The hotel is owned by Felcor, a Houston, Texas-based real estate investment trust.
