EFFAT puts forward proposals to counter tourism labour shortages in Europe

After COVID-19, employment in travel and tourism in Europe is estimated to have dropped by 9.3%, equating to 3.6 million jobs.

Tourism staff shortages in Europe impact all countries in Europe with varying intensity. Some numbers:

  • In Germany, almost every fourth job in the hospitality sector was lost during the pandemic
  • Austria and Belgium lost half of the tourism staff
  • Spain lost almost 20% of the staff

Short-time work, temporary lay-offs of workers and quest for quick profits of many hospitality-tourism companies have led to further precariousness of jobs in the sector and are the reasons why most of the workforce has left the sector and never got back.

EFFAT and the hospitality-tourism trade unions in Europe are concerned about labor shortages and the future of workers. This is why EFFAT, in cooperation with its affiliates, elaborated a set of proposals to overcome labour shortages in the hospitality sector by improving the attractiveness of jobs through better working conditions.

The position paper Fight labour shortages in hospitality-tourism by improving the attractiveness of jobs was adopted the latest EFFAT Executive Committee meeting in Vienna on 13 and 14 June 2022/
