Staff of the Royalton Saint Lucia Resort and Spa staged what they described as a ‘peaceful protest’ Wednesday afternoon outside the hotel compound.
It is estimated that more than twenty employees of the resort are said to have taken part in the action which began at around 5:pm and lasted until about 7pm.
They expressed concern about conditions of work. And the hotel’s failure to issue staff with an adequate number of uniforms. There were also complaints about the shift allocation, job security, and shortages at the resort.
It is believed that many of the picketers were attached to the hotel’s bar.
Claims are that that the protesters were not allowed to reenter the resort at the end of the protest.
