Gender Equality

ETF Women's Logo - Promoting Equality*

Transport is the one of the most segregated industrial sectors, with only 25% of the EU workforce represented by women. The ETF believes that the challenges for transport unions reside in addressing the feminisation of workforce in transport, by unionising women in the emerging sectors and companies, by developing strategies to tackle low quality employment, by mainstreaming the gender dimension in trade union policies and collective bargaining, by dealing with segregation and by improving working conditions and tackling pay-gaps, by achieving gender balance representation in union structures and negotiation bodies, by improving participation of women in all aspects of trade union life and by disseminating information on ETF gender action amongst trade unionists.
