Hotel owners put on their rubber gloves for today's strike

 Hotel owners and managers will be donning their rubber gloves today  at 10 am to clean hotel rooms for arriving guests. Housekeeping and other hotel staff go on strike at 10 and the strike lasts until midnight. 

Hotel owners contacted by said that they could manage the strike action today with managers stepping into housekeeping but that obviously this couldn't continue for any longer period of time. 

People arriving early to their hotels however could have to expect some lack of service. Guests already at hotels may not get their rooms cleaned or towels changed.
