Progressive Librarians Guild Opposes the Actions of the Hyatt Company

Be it hereby resolved that the Progressive Librarians Guild opposes the actions of the Hyatt Company in its mass firing of housekeepers in Boston and Cambridge. We also oppose the actions of the Hyatt Company in having regular employees train temporary employees to cover for regular employees' vacations, then use those newly trained temporary employees to permanently replace the regular employees.

We urge all librarians to avoid using Hyatt facilities during the 2010 Midwinter Meeting of the American Library Association.

Approved by the Progressive Librarians Guild. Coordinating Committee
October 14, 2009.

For further information, see the Progressive Librarians Guild's Union Action Committee and Union Library Workers Project | Modeled after Foxborough Democratic Town Committee's resolution on Hyatt.
