Commission's Road Initiative 30 March 2017
European Commission Road Initiative: ETF campaigns for a social package of legislative measures
Today, 30 March, at noon, the ETF revealed at a press conference the measures the European Commission is currently evaluating with the view to include them in the upcoming Road Initiative, a legislative package supposed to be launched in only 2 months. The message of the ETF delegation, coach drivers and trade union representatives from Belgium, Spain and Denmark, was clear: drivers cannot work or drive longer hours and rest for less without becoming a real and unwilling threat for their own safety, for the safety of their passengers, for the safety of other road users. ETF union officials called the bundle of measures ‘a way to legalise social dumping’ and pointed out to the fact that the sector will become even less attractive for young people.   more >>
