  • HOTELS CHIEF CONDEMNS GOVERNMENT DECISION TO REINTRODUCE JOINT LABOUR COMMITTEES | Irish Hotels Federation
    the Hotels Joint Labour Committee system JLCs Michael Vaughan President of the IHF stated that the decision which affects hotels operating outside of Dublin and Cork will impose outdated wage setting mechanisms and additional layers of bureaucracy on hotels at the expense of job creation in the sector This barrier to job creation places an unjustifiable burden on hotels the very businesses that should be supported as sources of growth in employment says Mr Vaughan We need an environment that safeguards the 54 000 employees in hotels and guesthouses but most importantly allows for further job creation JLCs make no sense for our country and are neither appropriate nor fit for purpose in a modern competitive economy They have lost all relevance with the introduction of the National Minimum Wage Act and over 40 other separate pieces of extensive employment legislation including the Working Time Directive As it stands payroll is already the largest element of costs within the hotels sector accounting for in excess of 40 relative to turnover following significant increases over the last decade This puts hotels and guesthouses at a serious competitive disadvantage compared to our biggest competitors such as Northern Ireland and Britain where average

  • HOTELIERS HAIL THE GATHERING AS AN ENORMOUS SUCCESS | Irish Hotels Federation
    visitors to Ireland during the first ten months of 2013 largely on foot of an enormously successful year of The Gathering Tim Fenn Chief Executive said that the upturn in overseas visitors in 2013 has given the tourism industry a significant boost with visitor numbers directly attributable to the Gathering providing a much welcome increase in revenue particularly from the North American market Today s figures released by The Gathering Ireland 2013 are reflected in results of the IHF s end of year barometer which shows 73 of hoteliers reporting an increase in overall business during the year Looking at the prospects for 2014 the industry survey reveals a positive outlook for the next 12 months among the vast majority of hotels and guesthouses 84 nearly double the number who had a positive outlook this time last year 46 Mr Fenn states The Gathering has proved an enormous success in attracting additional overseas visitors particularly from North America Many of these holidaymakers travelled around the country during their stay delivering a boost to regional tourism and local economies We have also benefited from growth in tourism visitors from continental Europe and the UK This is an example of a targeted tourism initiative that has had a real impact delivering an impressive return on investment with an additional 170million revenue generated for tourism businesses throughout the country In terms of competitiveness the Government s decision to retain the 9 VAT rate will continue to help when marketing Ireland abroad as a tourism destination This measure combined with increased air access through the scrapping of the air travel tax will enable us to attract a greater share of overseas visitors in 2014 and beyond says Mr Fenn This is directly feeding into increased confidence on the ground with over 62 of hoteliers
