Rail strikes would ‘devastate ‘hospitality businesses
Analysis by UKHospitality shows that the upcoming rail strikes will cost the sector £1.5 billion on strike days.
It is similar to the level of disruption caused by the Omicron Covid-19 variant last year.
Hospitality businesses have already seen large-scale cancellations, which are unlikely to be rescheduled
It will have a ‘devastating impact on the sector’ UKHospitality says.
UKHospitality Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said: “The impact of rail strikes already this year has been wide-reaching, but this will pale in comparison to what we will see.”
“This disruption will devastate hospitality businesses during its busiest period of the year.”
“The Christmas period is not just good for businesses, it’s the most lucrative time for workers.”
