Over the past few weeks, a slew of supplier companies have joined the fight over California Assembly Bill 5, which as written would severely disrupt the independent contractor business model in our industry in California and beyond. Specifically, AmaWaterways, Carnival Corporation & plc, Classic Vacations, Insight Vacations, Pleasant Holidays, Princess Cruises, Red Carnation Hotels, Trafalgar and The Travel Corporation all recently sent letters to the bill sponsor asking that a travel advisor exemption be added to the bill. Kudos to these companies for helping the cause and to Alex Sharpe of Signature Travel Network for leading the supplier engagement effort. Want to add your company to this list?
