Exclusive pics from workers protest at Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos

I told y'all a few days ago that workers of the Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos, are currently protesting against the management of the hotel. Here are exclusive pics from their protest right in front of their hotel. The workers are alleging maltreatment, poor salaries and sacking of staff without any genuine reason as part of the reasons for the protest.

A staff told LIB that what angered them even more was the recent deduction of N7,500 from their salary due to a claim from management that workers have been overpaid for 5 years. They said there is disregard for their rights and unjust exploitation of their services hence disregard for their effort and hard work. The workers said they've had enough and are demanding change from management. They are now insisting on an association to help them fight for their rights. More pics after the cut..

They should contact Unite Here/unitehere.org, the international hospitality union, for some help. It's based out of the US and Canada but can probably provide technical assistance for effective organizing. The workers it represents wins amazing concessions from major hotels (independents and chains) all the time.

In solidarity with the workers,

God have mercy on employers

Ok...... hotel workers association will be next on NLC agenda.

Anonymous said...

This is what I always say. It is not all about creating employment but how are these employees treated when they get on the job. This is a very sad reality in our country. People work and at the end of the day they realise that their employees never remitted a dime as pension meanwhile they got deducted. Even exposed people like you and I get that treatment too but we stay silent so long as our monthly salaries come. Then the work environment is one that people work in fear because they do not want to loose their jobs. Also people work without any terminal benefits put in place for them and when they get fired, no benefits. Ministry of Labour and the NLC must come up with a body that will be given the authority to move around in organisations whether public or private to ensure compliance to these statutory rules.
