The situation in the tourism industry of this overseas department of France was called critical in the Union of Workers of the Guadeloupe Hospitality Industry.

The trade union fears that in the coming year, the Guadeloupe tourism sector expects a "disaster scenario" similar to the situation in 2021.

In support of its concerns, the organization cites data according to which in December the number of bookings in hotels and cottages in Guadeloupe decreased by 73%.

In the current situation, the authorities are considering the possibility of paying industry workers compensation in case of loss of 50% of revenue.

For their part, the Guadeloupe Travel Agencies Union believes that financial assistance should be provided already when the threshold of 40% is reached, and, according to the Union of Industry Workers, when 30% of revenue is lost.
