TD Garden lays off part-time ushers

Ushers at TD Garden, home of the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins, have been laid off, according to a letter obtained by the Boston Globe

Employees received a letter Tuesday from Delaware North, owner of TD Garden, stating that the workers, who are employed part-time, “will not be scheduled until the conditions at our unit allows us to resume normal operations.” The letter said workers “may be eligible” for unemployment benefits, per the Globe. 

No timetable has been set for the return of the NBA or NHL season. One affected employee, who spoke to the Globe on the condition of anonymity, said the letter was the first form of communication he had with the company in the last two weeks despite the mounting uncertainty of the situation.

“The coronavirus has had significant implications across all of Delaware North’s lines of business, including at your unit,” the letter read. “All the major sports leagues suspended their seasons, governments are requiring closures and reduction of capacity at certain venues, tourism has declined, events have been canceled, and more people are simply staying home. Due to this, the Company has no choice but to ensure that we are appropriately staffed.”
