Fact finding mission Turkey 17 December 2014
International trade union movement calls for transparency in aid distribution for refugees in Turkey
Following the report of Kenan Öztürk (TUMTIS), Turkish regional representative in the ETF Executive Committee, on the situation of Kurdish refugees fleeing from the barbaric violence of the Islamic State (IS) in Iraq and Syria, ETF’s governing body decided to accept the request for setting up an international delegation for a fact finding mission to the Turkish-Syrian border. The mission delivered a gloomy picture of the circumstances in which local authorities have to organise support for the refugees arriving in Turkey. At a press conference organised nearby Kobanî, a Syrian city that was recently under siege by IS troops, delegates from the Turkish and international trade union movement called for fair and transparent distribution of the financial aid provided by the international community and administered by the Turkish government.  more >>

ETF welcomes rejection of European Commission’s list of infringements for Road transport
In its plenary meeting of today, Wednesday 17 December, the European Parliament has rejected the European Commission’s list on categorisation of infringements for road transport with 453 votes in favour and only 180 against. The list is of key importance for the sector since it leads to prohibiting access to the Community market of those hauliers who repeatedly and systematically commit infringements against a number of EU legal acts such as the driving and rest time rules or the rules concerning the maximum weights and dimensions of commercial vehicles. ETF objected the list in its current form, mainly because it failed to include illegal cabotage and infringements to social and labour rules applicable to road transport. more >>
