The Scottish Government have set up the Scottich Tourism Recovery Taskforce to support the industry through the crisis. The industry owners also have an independent body, STERG, (the Scottish Tourism Emergency Response Group).
We support schemes for tourism industry support that increase employment and do not support workforce precarity. In particular we are interested in schemes whereby the government provides assistance to workers to undertake leisure and holiday activity.
We are concerned that Covid-19 will create an unprecedented demand for workforce precarity.
