Did you know that the Boston Marriott Copley fired hundreds of its employees in the middle of the pandemic?
In September 2020, the Boston Marriott Copley fired 230 long-time employees.
These workers and their families are now struggling to pay their mortgages, feed their families, and survive on unemployment. Former Boston Marriott Copley workers are calling for their return to work if and when business returns.
Over 30 Boston hotels have agreed to recall their workers after the COVID-19 crisis is over and business returns. In rain or shine, former Boston Marriott Copley workers have continued to voice their pain after being fired.
Fired Boston Marriott Copley workers were not offered the chance to return to work when the crisis was over, but instead told they could reapply, losing decades of service they put into Marriott. To add insult to injury, many fired workers were offered less than half of the severance pay they had expected after years of loyalty and hard work due to a sudden change in policy. One year after their termination, former Boston Marriott Copley workers are still fighting for their home for decades to do the right thing.
Former Boston Marriott Copley workers are calling for guests and groups not to stay at the hotel until the hotel agrees to bring back fired workers when business returns and provide full severance.
