Motion: Recruiting staff within the hospitality and tourism sectors

Council Meeting - 5th April 2022

“This Council calls on the UK Government and the NI Executive to urgently review the current deficit experienced by employers in recruiting staff within the hospitality & tourism sectors.  This has become a major crisis not only locally but throughout the entirety of Northern Ireland.

Further, that this Council writes to Stephen Foster, Minister for Immigration in the UK Government, and associated Stormont Ministers, to ask that immediate measures are instigated to alleviate the recruitment difficulties in this vital sector to our economy.

It is recommended that this Motion is circulated to all other Councils in Northern Ireland seeking their support in lobbying on behalf of the Tourism and Hospitality providers”.

Proposed by: Proposed by Councillor Armstrong and seconded by Councillor Thornton
