The European Transport Workers’ Federation is a democratic federation of transport trade unions. Our policy positions, campaigns and actions are the result of democratic decision making and approval. Various statutory bodies and committees, elected by our affiliate unions, form the governance structure of the ETF. The ETF Secretariat in Brussels has a small professional team who support and coordinate the ETF’s work.
Each ETF Section – the bodies that coordinate our activities in a specific transport sector – also has democratic governance systems and committees. Those are explained on the pages dedicated to our work in the sector in question.
The rules about ETF decision making and governance are set out in our Constitution.
