Hi there, My friend has been sacked from his job at a hostel

Resolved Question:

Hi there,

My friend has been sacked from his job at a hostel in Barceona because he complained a few weeks ago about the long hours and low pay. Please can you advise if this is legal in Spain? Surely there should be a warning procedure? Are there any rules hostels/hotels should follow in Spain? What is the employment law/dismissal procedures? & finally are there any unions he could join to fight unfair dismissal?
