Trade Union sentenced to pay EUR 3,000

Trade Union sentenced to pay EUR 3,000

JAN 10, 2022

A trade union offering a hotel voucher of EUR 100 as a “souvenir” of the election day to its participating members constitutes a breach of the freedom of association of the other trade unions because the trade union in question was indirectly asking to vote in favor of its members “in exchange of this voucher” (an action prohibited in the general elections in Spain). The trade union was sentenced to pay the other trade union damages in the amount of EUR 3,000 (instead of the claimed EUR 25,000) because out of the 15,000 members only 200 got the voucher and the results of the election were similar to those in previous years, so the breach did not have a serious impact on the result. Spanish SCJ Nov 10, 2021.

Hostess girls

Hostess girls have an employment relationship because there is dependency from employer for (i) having a fixed working time and schedule, and (ii) receiving a percentage of the drinks they sell to clients directly from the Company instead from the client himself. It is not prostitution because even if they are lightly dressed and flirt with clients, it does not mean they are willing to have sex. Appellate Court of Galicia 28/03/18
