However she pointed out that staff rotas drawn up a month in advance and that staff "get the hours they expect". She insisted that the workers whose duties include welcoming the 500000 visitors to the Palace each summer "the same rights as any other employees". These include sick pay holiday entitlement and opportunities to join a pension."
