Staff of Southern Sun hotel, Ikoyi protest (photos)

Some of the staff of Southern Sun Hotel in Ikoyi are currently protesting at the hotel premises. They are alleging victimization, racism, non-increment of the salary (they claim they earn as low as N21k) and want changes. Though I heard the hotel is not owing salaries...they just want more. More photos after the cut...

it has been like dat for a while,the mgt inhumanity to there staff,plenty of there staff had loss there life without one minute silent talk more of compensation,while d foreigners keep earning fat salaries in millions for doing notin,while d so call nigerian staff(laborer)earn as low as 21k,i think our govt have to do smtin about dis so called impunity and dis unscrupoulos attitute of d mgt

Anonymous said...

That's true, we've been victimised on several occasions. Staffs get suspension without due process. Of recent salaries of non-union member staffs and held on to the ones of union members. The on demand spans back January 2015.
Lots of racism and sold outs. Our Nigerian managers have sold us out. This is a south African company and such can never happen in their country Linda don't forget that a Nigerian died in their police custody last week and no investigation was carried out. We need help.

Sad, really. It's probably because the cost of doing business is so high i.e. energy cost.

Solve energy problems and there'll be more money to take care of employees, this is applicable to most companies in Nigeria

9ja Parrot said...

This is a protest in vain. Employers of labour reserve the right to increase salaries, review it downward or downsize. No employee is duty-bound to continue to work where you are not satisfied with the pay, simply resign, collect your final entitlements and move to another organisation! You cannot compel any organisation to increase your salary!!! The reality is that, even, some state government could not afford the minimum wage! Let's stop encouraging what is not obtainable.

Jolly Smart said...

Na by force to work Der Quit! U av a job ur complaining..

Chizy Raky said...

E be like say u be manager of that lekki hotel and suites and u pay ur workers 21k that's why u dey support the 21k. With the situation of the country what can 21k do for a human being? Only transportation has taken all of the money plus the one dem borrow sef. So Shut the eff up!

JIRO said...

The protest is not justifiable on many counts. The pay is above the minimum wage. You accepted the offer when it was given. You are not forced to work. Promotion/Increment is earned and at the discretion of management as influenced by economic realities. You have the option to resign. Meanwhile, employers must begin to take staff welfare as top priority. They should make working attractive as much as they can. Effective communication remains key to productive industrial relations. Lastly, cost of doing business in Nigeria is too high. Government must provide enabling environment for businesses to thrive.

Ann Willams said...

All this people sef..With the kind of money they make...Haba!!!!! 21k...transport and feeding dey inside...SMH..

I ask this question everyday... ARE OUR LABOR LAWS FUNCTIONAL??!!!
Plus, in the name of Foreign Investments/Companies, why do we turn a blind eye to alot of inhumane treatment of workers?. i don't see court cases making the news regarding stuffs like this. its just sad and unfair. Its common sense really, keep your staffs happy, your customers will be happy too...in the end your business will be happier.

Federal Palace does not owe their staff a dime, they pay as at when due. In fact most times, they pay before time sef so get your facts right. To be fair, sometimes we make comments based on one sided storyline. Radisson blu also doesn't owe their staff. I'm not making a case for SA businesses but I must say that sometimes, even Nigerian employers are worse. The cost of doing business in this country is unnecessarily high and the citizens are the ones that bear the brunt, not to talk of Lagos State tax. A lot of companies are folding up, many are downsizing, FG needs to provide a better economy for businesses to thrive. I hope they know that service charge depends on how much patronage they've had during the month. I pray this country gets better.

Henry Obiora said...

Its a pity cos in SA nigerians are the ones protesting...and in Nigeria... we are still the ones

Augustine Ohonsi said...

if the hotel is making money, they should increase staff welfare to boost productivity and many other benefits, if they are not so profitable then they need to cut costs and make many changes to management. there is hope for dialogue

Solihu Ramat said...

The 21k am sure is the basic salary. Their take home pay for the month can not be less than 80k service charge inclusive. They better don't cause trouble for themselves, cos Southern Sun is one of the few hotels that pays well.
