Support for Fair Hotels in Croatia

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for this good news from Croatia!

We congratulate STUH and its social partners for this initiative to establish a Fair Hotels website promoting hotels in Croatia where workers' rights are respected, collective agreements are adhered to and a social dialogue between trade unions, workers’ representatives and employers takes place. Fair treatment and good working conditions motivate the staff and are preconditions for quality services in the hotel industry. This initiative is a good example for social partners in other countries and it is an important contribution to fight the unfair competition in the hospitality sector.

EFFAT endorses the Fair Hotels campaign, and for all future meetings and stays in Croatia we will only use hotels listed on the Fair Hotels website.

We will promote the Croatian Fair Hotels website amongst our affiliates and other European trade union federations.

EFFAT will encourage the hotel and restaurant trade unions in other countries to launch similar initiatives to promote fair hotels.

Furthermore, we call upon all independent travellers, tour operators, corporate clients, organisations, etc., searching for hotel accommodation in Croatia, to book with Fair Hotels.

Harald Wiedenhofer
EFFAT General Secretary
