    Today Might Be a Little Rough if You're Staying at the Park Hyatt Chicago :confused:

    If you're checking into the Park Hyatt Chicago, you might not get the welcome you hoped for. That's because hotel workers from the Unite Here Local 1 union will be striking in front of the hotel for better working conditions for hotel housekeepers.

    Apparently Hyatt Hotels is the last major hotel chain in Chicago to agree to a deal with the union. In fact, over a year ago in May, a few hundred Hyatt employees walked out on their jobsin protest. But that was only for a few hours while today looks like it will be an all-day thing.

    Hyatt's also got the same problem today in other cities too, nine to be exact including Boston, where two years ago 100 Hyatt employees were suddenly fired. Hopefully, Hyatt and hotel workers in Chicago can kiss and makeup, or at least come to an agreement on a contract, very soon.

    This is not something unique to Hyatt at all. For example, a block from my office in Chicago, the Marriott has been barricaded by their employees on strike for months. Also, a big strike outside a Westin also comes to mind.

    Chicago is Chicago, strikes from old school unions that has not woken up and smelled the coffee, absolutely dirty politicians, highest taxes in the country, kick back deals at convention centers and airports, the worst convention center in the world where it's impossible to do business is what this city is about.
