France -Agency workers Park Hyatt Paris Vendôme Hotel on strike -September 24, 2013

Workers at the five-star Park Hyatt Paris Vendôme Hotel went on strike for pay rises, better working conditions and direct employment. The majority of the 60 housekeeping staff and valets who participated in the industrial action are employed via service agency La Française de Service. CGT representatives said the direct hired staff of Hyatt supports the action but fears repercussions if they participate. The Paris Hyatt management said to be ´in no way involved´ and referred to the maintenance subcontractor.
