SIXTY-FIVE per cent of the current staff at the Guadalpin Marbella and Guadalpin Banus hotels has agreed to a redundancy plan proposed by union UGT. Both hotels, run by a branch of promoter Aifos, are in bankruptcy proceedings. The plan has been sent to the Malaga Mercantile Court for approval and has been backed by almost all the 200 employees, except eight at the Guadalpin Marbella and 12 at the Guadalpin Banus.
The staff have not been paid since December last year, nor have they received their bonus from July 2010.
The two hotels are due to be permanently taken over by Global International Hotel Business, a branch of Nortia, with whom an agreement was signed several months ago.
The high occupancy levels over the past months at the hotels, have lead many of the workers to fight for the hotel to continue open, according to UGT.
All the workers, whether or not they have agreed to the plan, will be taken on by Nortia, although the court can request that their contract with the branch of Aifos running the hotels be terminated.
The administrators of the company have issued a certificate which guarantees that employees who have adhered to the redundancy plan can obtain up to 150 days pay from the Salary Guarantee Fund.
