Fair Transport for Europe

Unions and workers together for dignity at work

European transport workers are under attack, facing unfair competition, social dumping and exploitation. The result: job losses, poor working conditions, precarious contracts and low wages.

But another way is possible. Workers across Europe are joining forces. We demand that employers and politicians unleash the power of transport to create millions of quality jobs for Europe. That’s Fair Transport!

Fair Transport Europe is the ETF’s campaign against social dumping in the European transport sector. We are fighting for quality jobs for transport workers and a safe, reliable service for customers. European transport trade unions are standing together to demand an end to unfair competition and exploitation. We’re organising across Europe to show the strength of our movement, building up to an international week of action in March 2019. With the European Elections fast approaching, we expect clear commitments from politicians that they will defend and develop quality work in the transport sector.

Every part of the ETF, including our affiliates across Europe , is participating in the Fair Transport campaign. You’ll find some information and news here, but the full story is on the campaign website.

Statement

Will the new European Parliament President deliver for transport workers?

This week the EU has chosen new leaders for its key institutions, but most of the candidates are not exactly progressive. One exception is David Sassoli, the Italian chosen to lead the European Parliament for the next 30 months. We sent him an open letter to remind him of his previous commitments to workers’ rights, and make clear how urgently working people in Europe need a new approach.

A stone in the sea to defend aquatic ecosystems and Fair Transport

FLAI CGIL and ETF dedicated a stone sculpture to Fair Transport as part of the project ‘La Casa dei Pesci’. Our huge block of marble has now been lowered into the Mediterranean. It will become part of an underwater gallery which prevents illegal fishing and offers a habitat to fish.
