The ETF Road Transport Section brings together 80 ETF affiliates from 31 countries who organise members in road transport. The Section meets at least twice per year to decide on its policies, and discuss actions, projects and campaigns needed to achieve its goals. We also define positions and actions aimed to influence social and road specific legal proposals open to debate and adoption by the European Institutions.
The day-to-day functioning of the Section is entrusted to the ETF Secretariat and the Road Section Steering Committee, which is elected every five years prior to the ETF Congress. The Steering Committee includes the Section President and the two Vice-Presidents, the Chairperson representing the ETF delegation in the Road and Logistics Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee at EU level, two members in charge of coordinating the Section’s passenger and freight activities, as well as the youth and women’s representatives. Co-opted members are validated by the Section as being part of the Committee as and when a request comes in.
The Section is represented in the ETF Executive Committee by its elected President. The Section calls for ad-hoc working groups whenever working on a specific technical matter or preparing campaigns and actions. This allows us to be flexible and to engage as many members as possible in our work, provided they have the necessary expertise.
The composition of the ETF Road Transport Steering Committee 2017-2022 is as follows:
