Greenwich Hyatt restaurant staff want to return to work
There’s something wrong with the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich. This is a hotel that should serve our business community by providing a place where important meetings can take place over dinner or drinks; it is a place where groups should celebrate special events. There is an extraordinary atrium filled with whimsical water features and a variety of tree species. His restaurant has become an annual family tradition. But as guests continue to pay luxury hotel prices, the hotel restaurant is closed. As Connecticut’s hospitality industry gears up for bailout funds from the state of Connecticut, Hyatt Regency hotel management demands guests forgo a full-service hotel with cost-cutting measures that are hurting our tourism industry and eliminating good union jobs. We deserve better.
Fortunately, the bar and restaurant workers, who have served this hotel’s guests for decades, are now fighting for themselves, their families, guests, the hotel and our community.
