Kurumba Maldives staff on STRIKE!!

Yes Finally the Universal owned resort Kurumba Maldives formerly known as Kurumba Village is officially on strike! Despite catering for diplomats, prominent businessmen, and generally to an affluent clientèle, the resort has a tall list of grievances against the staff to address which is the reason of the strike. It is quite true that the staff of KV are low paid, poorly fed, and unlovingly accommodated whilst job and work discrimination exists to a level where it can be said to be above the sky. To cap the list of woes, the service charge which the resort charges from guests are cheated on while being distributed to the staff. Then there is the little issue of over working staff without overtime pay which is brazenly against the labour law and accepted norms of business. The situation was quite the same for 38 years and now it appears the staff are protesting these conditions.

    hey fatty, u know y they chased them coz they showed middle finger to kurumba staff…. you people are dignified, qualified and from noble family and do this………………… THIS WAS WHAT WAS THOUGHT TO YOU??
    well what the staff of kurumba did was perfectly right and instead of that senseless bugger who showed the middle finger to the staff, even if u were there in their place they might have kicked on ya butt as well.
    wenever anything happend in kurumba, it was not staff who was wrong it was you people. you people provoked them. the middle finger for u too…. IMMA PIMMA

  2. go back to russia IMMA PIMMA go back n eat potatoes….. y in maldives? this is nt ur country… go back. do not play with maldivians…

  3. kurumba has 80%-90% occupancy velassaru almost same baros and kurumati as well same bout full moon, huvayen fushi as well, but the service charge we get is less
    how much W resorts is paying, 700$ min service charge per month in of season as well. but UNIVERSAL properties the above mentioned resorts do not pay half of it also. if our salary is 250$ they pay 140$ service charge. y?
    they have less room, their staff do not go agressive, do not complaint…. y then only kurumba or velassaru or baros, y?
    better do a good calculations. people who r nt educated, u fool them but do not and never try to fool an educated person, or u will fall so bad then never be able to get up!!! remember my words, write it down IMMA!!

    I say: they r not just chasing away PEOPLE, do not call urself a human, u r greedy human, it is same like terrorist fighting for jihad, where there is no jihad, they r terrorist same way u r greedy people who need money, wether it belongs to other peoples poket, u know well to snatch it. these kind of people u r, and these kind of people should not be chased, they should be kicked out of the country they do not belong. sense less IMMA
    do not blame politics…. politics is not playing anything here it is you people who do and blame the victims who suffer like kurumba staff. u people are much worse than the terrorists, atleast they take responsbility after they r success in some disaster mess up’s. you people r worse than demons.

  5. Dear IMMA, it is senseless creatures like you who think this. there are same fat brains all the places, they need staff like KURUMBA. u telling me to look for another job because it has not happend with u. on e hotelier website they show that they are giving a well furnished accomodation, where is the room well furnished? they say 8 hours, but we do more than 8 hours, there is less staff, no proper lenin like bed sheets and pillow covers.
    you must be an executive level and geting all facilities… so no issues. but people who not geting doing this. and wen we complaint they send people home saying we do not need you. we get less paid and all extra money goes in ur pocket. correct urself and then talk with guts, if we raise then you rich n crapy less working creatures will vanish from earth. i support kurumba people. and people like u will b punished by god and god is watching, he needs ri8 time to strike, and then see….. u r happy here on earth but wen u will b shown another world where god is judge he will rip u apart. nxt time talk with sense IMMA or else u will get nice reply which will make ur mouth shut. mind it!

  6. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH UR CURRENT JOB..GET ANOTHER BLOODY JOB!!!!
    WHY DONT ALL GOVERNTMENT STAFF GO ON STRIKE? DO U THINK THEY ARE HAPPY WITH WHAT THEY GET? SHOULD THEY START CHASING PPL AWAY USING BATTONS? BUNCH OF POLITICALLY MOTIVATED MORONS>

    1. Trying to make the work place a better place is also a good another way. It just does not have to be that whenever somebody is unhappy with his or her job that he or she shall find another job. That’s actually the easy way out of the problem. The problem in the classic Koli resorts is that you cannot simply bring about your grievances to the top. The Top simply does not have time or patience to listen to others… This maybe the making of this strike.

  7. KURUMBA STAFF WHO WENT ON STRIKE ARE THE REAL LIFE HERO’s.
    REVOLUTIONARIES
    FIGHTERS FOR THEIR RIGHTS
    MEN WITH SELF ESTEEM
    REAL GUTS
    HATS OFF GUYS!!
    kicking time for them
    (on behalf of all the victims of the kurumba, baros, velassaru, huvayenfussi etc. resorts )
    what they doing is right
    it is true
    no staff facilities
    media come to us and see our animal life living like real animals which live in gutter….
    our life is made this way here.

    we r like animals here
