Kelly's Unión Baleares: Mallorca: In the fight for better working conditions, the chambermaids receive help from the head of government

Sooner or later you will get back and other problems. The maids on the Balearic island. Now the Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has assured them that he will work to improve their working conditions in the hotels.

The Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has assured the chambermaids on Mallorca that he will work to improve their working conditions in the hotels.

During a meeting with the "Kellys", the housekeeping union representatives at a hotel in Plama de Mallorca, Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said on Monday: "We know that there is still a lot to improve. That's why today I commit myself to continue working to that you will have more dignified working conditions."

The "Kellys Unión Baleares" call themselves the representatives of the housekeeping association on Mallorca. "You Kellys are doing fundamental work that is sometimes invisible, but that allows tourism to continue to grow," emphasized socialist politician Sánchez. The socialist regional president of the Balearic Islands, Francina Armengol, who was present at the meeting in a hotel in the island's capital Palma, assured that improving the working conditions of housekeeping was "absolute priority".

The "Kellys", who are not only represented on Mallorca and the other Balearic Islands, but now practically all over Spain, have been complaining about the exploitation of housekeeping by many hotels and other accommodations for many years. Among other things, they are demanding the right to early retirement, a binding regulation of workload and the legal recognition of more health problems than occupational diseases.

The Kellys estimate that 99 percent of so-called maids are actually women. The so-called stronger sex of men can hardly be found here, they report. Furniture has to be moved, heavy mattresses lifted and even heavier laundry trolleys pushed from room to room.

In addition, there are constantly repetitive, similar movements and the use of aggressive cleaning agents that can trigger allergies. It is said that most chambermaids eventually develop serious back and joint problems.

After the corona-related problems, tourism is booming again this year on the Balearic Islands. According to travel associations, there may even be more visitors in 2022 than in the record years before the pandemic.
