STAFF at the five star Incosol Hotel in Marbella have been on a three day strike.
Around 150 workers – one hundred percent of the workforce – gathered outside the hotel over the weekend to protest over a pay dispute that has been escalating throughout the year.
The staff have not been paid for four months.
And the hotel owes more than 770,000 euros in back pay, representing an average of 5,000 euros per worker.
The hotel remained open over the weekend with the 160 guests having to fend for themselves.
This is the second time this year that the hotel staff have been on strike, but the union has as yet failed to reach an agreement with the Jale group.
The owner has acknowledged the debt and said that there is a payment plan in place.
But the workers union has said that if no agreement is reached before the 5th September, they will walk out again.
