Description
Major objectives Improve daily life and workers'rights of the tourism migrant labourforce
Short Summary Seasonality act
In a mountain region as Rhône-Alpes, tourism weighs a lot in local and regional economy. Because of climate features, clients habits as well as from consequences of political choices in funding tourism facilities, Alpine French tourism appear as a strongly seasonal activity, with a main peak in winter and a second one (far weaker), in summer.
As a consequence, structure of employment in this sector is quite specific, with a large part taken by intermittent migrants in the labour force.
Workers are consequently in a fragile position towards employers and need support from public authorities to get complete and easy to access information about their social rights and response to their daily needs (especially health, social care and housing) Furthermore, these workers are mostly youngsters, which expose them to specific risky behaviors.
Regional level has thus taken initiative to meet these challenges, with an ambitious crosscutting action plan.
Integrated nature of this action plan lies:
• On the one hand in the coordinated mobilization of several preexisting or newly passed regional policies (public transportation, health, housing, support to dedicated networks)
• On the other hand by coordinating this plan with infra-regional public authorities at local level, especially by encouraging intermunicipal level in creating dedicated offices to take in migrant workers.
