Ireland - Union encourages ‘fair hotels’ campaign - May 27, 2010

SIPTU, the country’s largest union, has launched an initiative aimed at encouraging workers to use hotels which offer agreed levels of pay and conditions to staff for family holidays, short breaks, conferences and meetings. More than 40 hotels which recognise trade unions for collective bargaining and which have signed agreements governing terms and conditions for workers have been set out in the “fair hotels” campaign. Speaking at the launch, president of SIPTU and the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU), Jack O’Connor, said unions which have endorsed the campaign would be giving their business for conferences and meetings to hotels in the new scheme. The campaign is supported by the UIF, the federation of food, farm and hotel workers worldwide.
