Mauritius: Movement of grumbling by employees of duty-free shop of Plaisance airport

The employees working in the duty-free shop, Mauritius Duty Free Paradise, are angry after their new working conditions within the new international terminal of Marina airport which has been operational since September 12.

According to them, their direction removed them "the chairs at counters" and are now forced to stand for several hours in a row to provide their service, with a treatment that they consider "inhumane".

For example, they complain that last Monday after a delay of an air-plane the employees who took their posts at 2 p.m. have left work at 3 o'clock in the morning, while staying on their feet for the long interval apart from their lunch break.

Personnel in post in the duty free shop of Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Airport also complained of the distance of the restaurant where employees take their lunch break for an hour and is now located about twenty minutes round trip from Mauritius Duty Free Paradise, as shown in the newspaper Weekend.

The employees thus denounce "discomfort", "fatigue" as well as a decrease in inevitable quality of service for customers with backdrop of these new working conditions imposed by their management and that incompatible especially for pregnant women.
