TD Garden employees laid off amid coronavirus hiatus

Hundreds of part-time ushers for Boston’s TD Garden were laid off on Tuesday amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to a memo first obtained by the Boston Globe.

The news of the layoffs comes just days removed from the Jacobs family, the owners of the Bruins, establishing a $1.5 million fund for Bruins and TD Garden part-time employees affected by the coronavirus shutdown.

Per the Globe, the letter sent to employees was titled “Operational Impact of Coronavirus,” and it said workers “will not be scheduled until the conditions at our unit allows us to resume normal operations. As this situation is rapidly evolving, we will continue to update you with the anticipated date that we will resume business. We hope to provide as much notice as possible.”
