THE Costa Almeria hospitality trade highlighted the issue of peak season staff requirements at a meeting with the Government Sub-delegate in Almeria to discuss the provincial sector’s demands.
Representatives of the ASHAL association for the provincial hotel and catering trade told Manuel de la Fuente they would like to see Social Security process the register of workers on bank holidays due to emergencies or unforeseen circumstances, with the obligation of regularizing their situation on the first working day.
The sector requested among other measures, some of which the Sub-delegation said come under the responsibility of the Junta de Andalucia, the incorporation into law of the European regulation which regulates catering establishments’ working hours, underlining the sector’s need for staff, especially in high season.
ASHAL currently represents 500 businesses, among them hotels, hostels, campsites, restaurants, bars, discos and pubs.
