Dozens of hotel workers marched on Labor Day to demand better working conditions in San José.

According to the union, there are at least 300 workers from different hotels impacted by these contracts.

Since the start of the pandemic, many hotels have reduced their services and staff, while their profits have increased, they said.

This is why they demanded that these companies respect their work by increasing salaries and reverse personnel cuts that, according to the union, have caused poor employment conditions, including heavy workloads, loss of hours and salaries that are not enough to cover pay the cost of living.

“The fair contract, good benefits, a good salary and a good quality of work. Every day life is more expensive so we have to fight for more, and that’s why we are here, to make a good progress,” said Ana María, a worker at the Hilton hotel.

Telemundo 48 contacted five hotels in the city to give us their opinion on what the workers are demanding, however, so far we have not received a response.
