Only recently, the management of Istrabenz tourism decided, yes similar to the Bernardin hotels, the cleaning of the rooms and thus the maids are transferred to an external company, unofficially it should be Aktiva. The company employs 53 maids who clean in three hotels with four or five stars. The management of the company published a public tender and carried out other procedures, but now they have made a new decision, explained the president of the board of Istrabenz turizma Aleš Semeja

” These 53 people remain, we also acquired new employees, so yes there are now 58 of us on room work. We have replaced all retirements and departures during this time. This allows us to cover all those items our offers that operate all year round, while the part that doesn’t , but it is already outsourcing services,” said Semeja.

Trade unions, who insisted on the request all the time, yes a company such as Istrabenz must have full-time maids and cleaners, and also pointed out the problems they have with external contractors, they are satisfied, but remain cautious.

” That means that the efforts of the union and the workers fell on fertile ground, but we are still concerned about what the word ‘for now’ means. We want that this is practice , to stay like this, yes

tomorrow will not be any different of changes,” said union representative Andrej Grahor.

In the company Istrabenz turizem already this year they predict a record season in May, they have almost full hotels even for the upcoming Easter holidays.
