EFFAT-HOTREC Joint Declaration on Labour and Skills Shortages

Monday, 18 March 2024
Social Affairs

The lack of skills and labour force is strongly affecting the hospitality sector.

In order to overcome the challenges HOTREC and EFFAT agree that social dialogue and collective bargaining can be used as part of the solution, namely by:

  • Negotiating employment conditions
  • Promoting education and training
  • Providing a protective framework for the mobility of third country migrant workers.

Social partners count on the EU institutions and national governments to support the social partners in finding solutions to overcome these challenges.
