The Union of Autonomous Trade Unions of Croatia (UATUC) supports the project of the Trade Union of Tourism and Services „Fair Hotels“ because, from the trade union point of view, it will contribute to further strengthening of social dialogue and union organizing. “Fair hotel” label on a hotel will mean it has an established local union of STUH and signed collective agreement, whose provisions are respected by the employer, as well as all the other national regulations related to labour relations.

The UATUC recommends to all affiliated trade unions to organize their future activities in hotels with the “Fair Hotel” label, and UATUC itself will do that. “Fair Hotels” are not only in the interest of workers but also of employers, whose umbrella organization HUP positively assessed and supported the trade union initiative during one of the sessions of the Social council for tourism in 2014. “Fair Hotel” label is also a credit for the employer for caring for workers on the principles of corporate social responsibility.

We believe that the employers whose hotels do not meet the conditions for “Fair Hotel” label will recognize the value of this project and join it, because fair hotels are really in the interest of both social partners and wellbeing of everyone.

In solidarity,
Together we are stronger,

Mladen Novosel,
UATUC President
