The ETF Road Transport Section is dedicated to fighting for the rights and interests of the professional drivers and defending the social dimension of the European road transport sector, while at the same time promoting the values of the trade union movement.
Our guiding principle is the Solidarity between the ETF affiliated road transport trade unions, as a key way to build a strong union front in the sector, to eliminate anti-union practices and discrimination in terms of wages and working conditions between drivers in Europe.
The ETF Road Transport Section defends the dignity of the driver, a professional whose wellbeing is instrumental to the safety of European roads and of the European citizens alike.
For more details on our goals and objectives see the ETF Road Transport Section strategy.
