ETF-ETUI Sustainable Transport Days is a series of seminars for ETF affiliates and their members on the topic of Future of Transport policies in Europe. Seminars will kick off with an event open to all on the EU mobility strategy and Fair Transport.
The ETF is committed to working with EASA, and our representatives play an important role in the various EASA advisory bodies. Our mission is to ensure that the rules and regulations are representative of our views protecting members’ safety and interests and to ensure these regulations are not driven by commercial interests.
Civil aviation is a major driver of economic growth and jobs in Europe. However, large parts of the sector have lost their power as an engine able to generate direct employment.
In addition to this, the quality of jobs in aviation has deteriorated. The globalisation of air transport and its liberalisation in the early 1990s have led to a consolidation of the aviation industry without the establishment of a legal framework that protects workers’ rights. The European aviation industry must offer fair opportunities for workers while rogue competition under the pretext of cheaper fares should be forbidden. The ETF civil aviation section works to achieve common positions and develop common policies on European issues to improve the quality of the jobs and working conditions for aviation workers.
