A five-star hotel in the North has apparently been told to keep some of its foreign staff away from business delegates attending a major US investment summit, it emerged today.
Newly appointed Taoiseach Brian Cowen and British prime minister Gordon Brown are among those who are travelling to Belfast for the high-profile economic conference, which begins tomorrow.
The Stormont government’s business promotion body, Invest Northern Ireland, has apparently raised concerns with the Culloden Hotel on the outskirts of Belfast that migrant workers with broken English would be serving potential investors from America.
The luxury spa and hotel resort, where guests can pay €520 a night for a suite, has a number of Eastern European staff members on its books.
Invest NI is staging a series of breakfast meetings at the hotel as part of this week’s conference programme.
It is understood its request has required a reorganisation of the shift rota at the Culloden with extra staff from the North being drafted in.
So, smart move or backfire territory?
