Irish Hairdressing Council joins SaveJobs campaign

Published 07th May 2024 by Karina Corbett

The Irish Hairdressing Council has backed the new SaveJobs campaign, joining the Irish Hairdressers Federation (IHF) and the Hair and Beauty Industry Confederation (Habic) in supporting the initiative.

Isme (Irish Small and Medium enterprise Association) and a number of other trade organisations recently launched the major nationwide initiative to address rising costs.

The groups are also calling for greater representation for small businesses on the Labour Employer Economic Forum and the Low Pay Commission.

As part of the campaign, the organisations say they want a permanent 9% VAT rate for the food service, entertainment, experiential and grooming sectors. They are calling for wider support on reform of the national minimum wage, tax reform and industrial relations reform. The website is features an option to ‘sign the pledge’ so businesses and industry body members can voice their support for the initiative.

The Irish Hairdressing Council has stressed the need for change in these areas and is calling on its members to sign the pledge.  “Contact local TDs, Ministers or anyone with a voice and let them know how hard it is to keep our doors open and maintain the standard the industry deserves,” it said. “Make them hear us.”
