ETF Statement for UN Day

“Every day someone calls you a whore.”  ETF demands action on violence against women transport workers

63% of women transport workers have recently suffered violence at work. More than a quarter believe that harassment is an unavoidable part of the job. But violence at work is not inevitable. As we mark the UN Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on 25 November, it is time to take action.  more >>

Ahead of the EPSCO Council ETF publishes statement on posting of workers in road transport
On 16 October the EMPL Committee of the European Parliament rejected all attempts to exclude road transport from the scope of the revised posting of workers and its application directive. This shows strong political will to protect our professionals and to respect the EU Treaty which guarantees non-discrimination of EU citizens within the frame of free movement of labour. The ETF wants to believe that this vote is a clear sign too for an emerging collective conscience, of all Member States, that people and their dignity are no less important as business interests. Thousands of professional drivers, together with the ETF and our affiliates will now be waiting for the result of the upcoming EPSCO Council meeting of 23 October.

Mobility package: driving and rest time
The European Commission Mobility Package proposes a number of amendments to the driving and rest time rules (Regulation (EC) No 561/2006) and to the ‘smart’ tachograph regulation (Regulation (EU) 165/2014).  The proposed changes to the driving and rest time have never been subject to any consultation process in the past 3 years. Hence, their significant negative impact on road and passenger safety, as well as on pay, working and living conditions of bus, coach and truck professional drivers. Hence, the havoc caused by these proposals among drivers, feeding into people’s distrust in the European social project. Read statement under “related documents”.  more >>
