The tourism sector is a dynamic and highly profitable sector in many countries and regions of the world, while on the other side workers of the tourist receive very little to nothing from this high profitability that benefits the international monopolies, large capital and transnational corporations of this sector. At the same time vacation and tourist services are available to less people at higher prices, thus becoming inaccessible to the everyday workers and big masses of the people. This is the general framework, where we, tourism workers from around the world, live, work and fight. The situation is aggravated by the challenges caused by the deep and prolonged crisis of the capitalist system on an international level.
The II World Congress of Trade Unions of Workers in Hotels and Tourism will be aiming to analyze the situation the Tourism workers all over the world are facing and define actions towards the organization and the unified action of Hotels and Tourism workers internationally.
The Congress will have to discuss and approve the following items:
• Report of action of the previous period
• Political document
• International Plan of Action for the following period
• Election of new leadership
