The European Transport Workers’ Federation represents over 5 million transport workers in 41 countries
Transport workers are the sector’s “most valuable asset” reads the newly published Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy, but proposed initiatives fall short in matching this statement. The ETF reiterates that to fulfil the goals of the Strategy and enable the transition to greener transport, it is essential to address social issues and foster worker engagement.
Social issues and environmental concerns are two sides of the same coin. Fighting social dumping and climate action is one and the same struggle.
Workers and their unions must be involved in the processes that implement technological developments to ensure that they are fair and that no worker is left behind!
