Three hotels will generate 5,000 jobs in Cancun

The construction of three lodging centers in Cancun will generate 5,000 jobs during the first quarter of the year, two thousand of them direct and three thousand indirect, for members of the Revolutionary Confederation of Workers and Peasants (Confederación Revolucionaria Obrera y Campesina CROC).

Mario Machuca Sánchez, leader of the CROC in Quintana Roo, mentioned that one of the projects is Renaissance in Puerto Cancún, which construction is about to be finished and will begin operations shortly. Although it is a small hotel, it has only 200 rooms.

The second project is Royalton in the hotel zone, with 400 rooms; and the third is Haven Riviera Cancún, which, although it was already inaugurated, has yet to be completed with 150 extra rooms.

“We see that a first quarter of 2019 will bring more sources of employment and as a union we will be looking after the workers’ job security,” he added.

The tourism sector represents 40,000 sources of employment for the CROC, and there will be more contracts next year, and according to the promoters of Cancun’s Golden Mile, there will be at least five new hotel complexes in the area.

In 2018, the CROC affiliated 10 thousand more people, that is 15% more compared to last year when there were 50 thousand croquis.  “This year, despite the elections, concluded with a good numbers in terms of employment for ur union,” added Machuca Sánchez.

Machuca Sánchez stressed that Quintana Roo is the leader in employment generation with more than 43,000  formal jobes created during 2018.

According to the Asociación México ¿Cómo Vamos?, the state of Quintana Roo exceeded the formal employment goal created, above Baja California Sur, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas.
