The anger of the CEO lies in the acronym with which she refers to the group. “I would like to know, Mr. Mayor, if when you refer to a medical doctor if you call him “Kecu” (who heals) or perhaps a lawyer “Keli” (who litigates) or when you introduce yourself instead of referring that es Mayor is referred to as a “Kego” (who governs)”, he said in the statement. However, it is the collective of waitresses that calls itself with that term: association Kellys Balearic Union.

Last Thursday, December 1, Mayor José Hila changed the name to old Platja de Palma park for Parc de les Kellys. “It is the tribute we pay to the housekeepers, a group that has fought to improve their working conditions,” Hila said on her Twitter profile. This idea stems from an exhibition held a year ago at the Casal Solleric in which the work done by the chambermaids was recognized.

“I think it’s bullshit”

Sara del Mar García, president of the association Kellys Balearic Union, answered last friday to the words of the CEO: “I think it’s bullshit.” “It’s a play on words that we ourselves chose,” continues Del Mar, “that’s how we call ourselves.”

The solution for Riu to avoid “lowering them” is to change the name of the park “to ‘Park of the Housekeepers’ or ‘Park of the Cleaners’.”
