Hotel Hilton Milan workers on strike
Many Hilton Milan workers taking care of basic needs of the hotel – chambermaids, porters, but also the staff of the engineering and stewarding depts – are affected by outsourcing plans. They’ve been fighting for months against the outsourcing plan of the company, that would mean approximately 30 lay-offs.
According to Hilton, this choice is inevitable to reduce the costs.
The workers think that such decision is not justified because the hotel has an 80% rooms occupancy average.
Therefore, this operation is meant only to increase the profits, while ignoring the needs of the workers, who have been contributing - some of them for decades - to the hotel’s success.
We do not agree to outsourcing decision, this would mean lay-off for lot of employees and shakiness life to those who have to replace them.
Everyone knows what outsourcing means and which are the contracts and wages for people employed in cleaning companies or Cooperative.
FLAICA-CUB Union and the workers reject the attempt to create a series of threats turned to the workers who do not agree with outsourcing and its will to not deal with the union who has the greater enrolled workers of the Hilton Milan.
FLAICA-CUB Union urgently calls for a negotiation opening with Hilton Milan management.
