Gloriavale leaders have made a concerted effort to reduce the workload of “single ladies” who prepare meals for nearly 600 people, three times a day.
That was the evidence of Gloriavale administrator Serenity Valor, to an Employment Court hearing on Monday.
She said the leadership had created a curfew to close the kitchen and laundry, to give the unmarried women breaks if they started early.
“There has been over $80,000 spent in the kitchen on machinery and equipment in recent years to save in preparation time. This means it is not necessary to spend as many hours in the kitchen to accomplish what needs to be done to provide for almost 600 people three times a day,” she said.
