TRADE union CCOO has warned about the precarious labour conditions suffered by tourism workers in the Balearic Islands.
In a press release, secretary of the CCOO’s Service Federation, Jose Maria Martinez, explained that the number of employees on the verge of poverty has not stopped growing due to the increase in part-time, temporary contracts, despite the great tourism results registered over the past few weeks.
Mr Martinez explained that, even though staff in the hotel, restaurant and commerce industries work from eight to 10 hours, employers register them on the Social Security files as part-time workers, to avoid paying some of the fees.
Representatives of CCOO have encouraged all residents to alert authorities to these sorts of practices, to contribute to better conditions for tourism employees.
