Trade Union representatives representing Hotel workers from Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Norway, Spain and the UK met together in Brussels on 21st November at the 11th European Toursim Sector Assembly. On the agenda was co-operation at European level between unions organising workers in global hotel chains, unions responses to the growth in casualisation and zero hours contracts and health and safety in Hotel housekeeping departments.
Unite negotiators attending a meeting today with the Low Pay Commission urged the Commissioners to make a bold move and recommend that the Government increases the Minimum Wage by £1 to £7.31 from October 2014. The Unite team argued that such a move was affordable and would help tackle the cost of living crisis as well as moving the minimum rate closer to a Living Wage. It was also argued that the full rate should apply to those over 18 rather than those over 21.
Italian restaurant and catering workers went on strike on October 31 to protest the employer associations' plans to withdraw from the national collective agreement in the tourism industry, which includes restaurants and catering. Thousands of workers joined demonstrations in Rome and Milan and then held a picket line in front of the employer associations' headquarters.
