Strike at NH HotelsWorkers and their 3 unions at the Spanish-based NH Hotels chain have called a national strike for September 21 to contest massive outsourcing and dismissals. NH Hotels chain has some 400 hotels in 26 countries.

The call for action was decided in response to the company’s announcement of the elimination of 400 jobs – 120 dismissals and the remainder to be outsourced, with no assurances that NH employees will keep their jobs with the new employers.

According to NH Chairman Claver (in the NH 2010 Corporate Responsibility Report): “We have some excellent teams, which have a high sense of belonging and truly enviable profile in terms of attitude and ability which represents, without any doubt, an unbeatable asset for any responsible business organization that is constantly looking to achieve excellence”.
