Support our Industry Lobbying

Support the Tourism Alliance lobby which is calling for amendments to the Job Retention Scheme

Whilst everyone was very welcoming of the Job Retention Scheme in practical terms there are a number of shortfalls for businesses within our sector.  The main issues include:

  • Seasonal workers being outside the scheme if they were not on the payroll before 28th February
  • Furloughed staff not being able to undertake the essential work required to maintain the business until it can reopen or tick over in the meantime
  • Particularly for seasonal businesses, if reopening comes too late, they will not have the cash to survive the winter’s closed season

To support the initiative head over to BETA’s twitter page and retweet our pinned post to lend your voice to this lobby.  Hit retweet and use the hashtag #ProtectTourismJobs
