Managerial and Professional Staff (MPS) face specific challenges at work. Unions need to better understand the experiences of this growing category of transport workers, in order to organise them and offer tailored support.
To help unions gather knowledge and develop strategies, ETF carried out the project “TRAN-MAPS – Transport trade unions organising Managerial & Professional Staff”. This EU-funded project aimed to define the challenges faced by MPS and set out strategies that transport trade unions can use to attract them to join the union.
The result was a comprehensive report that gives an overview of MPS in the transport sector, offers tips for unions, and presents in depth analysis of five issues that particularly affect MPS:
The report is available as a short leaflet or a longer brochure, and is full of useful insights for unions and anyone interested in the changing world of work.
