Sweden's Hotel and Restaurant Union wants smoking in hotels banned. The union said in a press release on Thursday that too many hotel cleaners are forced to work in rooms that have been smoked in.

“We see now that a few hotels, such as the Clarion Collection Hotel Odin in Gothenburg – on its own initiative banned smoking,” said Ella Niia, the union's head.

“But it is going too slowly. We have almost 6000 hotel cleaners who also have the right to a good working environment.”

Last year, the union won a big victory after Sweden put a ban on smoking in public places.
