Indonesian Accor Union Council joins global housekeepers initiative
The Accor Union Council of Indonesian IUF-affiliate FSPM decided to support the global housekeepers initiative at its meeting in Jakarta on February 13, 2015. Heavy workloads from increased room quota and pain from intensive tasks were identified as hotel housekeepers' main issues and a full report of the Global Week of Action was given to participants.
The union council will play an active part in the initiative to improve hotel housekeepers' working conditions and to increase collective bargaining power.
Participants also expressed support for the President of the Malaysian NUHBRW, Brother Abdul Aziz, who has denounced human rights violations at Ibis Styles Ipoh hotel.
