ETF response to the “Aviation strategy for Europe”
On 19 January 2016, the Civil Aviation Section of the European Transport Workers’ Federation adopted its Response to the ‘Aviation Strategy for Europe’ presented by the European Commission in December 2015. The document reiterates the message sent by the ETF shortly after the Strategy was published. Despite the fact that aviation is a strong driver of economic growth, jobs offered in recent years are often outsourced, poorly paid and the precariousness of work in aviation has increased. There is a need for a holistic strategy linking growth, quality jobs, environment, development and a progressive social perspective.  The ETF response further outlines the ETF vision for the future EU aviation combining safety, security, fair competition, fair working conditions and social rights with fight against social dumping and abuse of free movement and freedom of establishment. more >>

S&D MEPs stand together with ETF for an upwards social harmonisation of European shipping
On Wednesday 21 October 2015, the ETF and S&D Group co-hosted the seminar called “Ensuring a future for European seafarers”, which addressed the continuous deterioration of European-based seafaring jobs. The sponsoring MEPs I. Thomas and L. Anderson recommended that, in the face of unbridled social dumping which turned European seafarers into an endangered species, time has come to establish a maritime space in which EU social legislation applies and where quality shipping is the rule in order to guarantee EU-based jobs and know-how.  more >>
