For over 25 days, the employees of Hotel Campanile Tour Eiffel have been on strike in order to demand better working conditions.
I have been following this movement for many years, ever since I first met the representative for CGT in charge of the Luxury Hotel sector. CGT is the main union in France, representing employees from all industries.
Today, there is a gathering organized behind the Campanile in Suresnes. Unfortunately, I won’t be there, but I wanted to post something about these men and women who work in the hotels in Paris, and raise awareness to the fact that most of the time, they are underpaid and mistreated.
I took the picture above last year during a protest at a hotel that is not so far from the Campanile Tour Eiffel.
