These annual reports offer a statistical view on women’s position in the rail sector, which is a unique tool in the transport sector in Europe. They also promote and monitor the implementation of the CER-ETF Joint Recommendations for a better representation and integration of women in the railway sector.
ETF and CER will negotiate an Autonomous Agreement to promote women in the rail sector. The Women in Rail Task Force has been given the mandate to prepare the negotiations that should start in the second half of 2019.
We explore the main problems and current developments for women’s employment in the rail sector in the areas of recruiting, reconciliation of work and private life, career and equal pay and overall equality policies. We then suggest concrete actions to improve women’s employment. This guide will guide others and help avoid mistakes.
