Celebrating European social dialogue in the railway sector (November 2019)

Since its conception in 1972, the railway social dialogue has become one of the longest-standing social dialogues in Europe. As part of the reform and the strengthening of the European sectoral social dialogue, CER and ETF reconfirmed this dialogue between employers and workers of the railway sector at European level in 1999, by jointly establishing the Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for Railways (SSDC Railways). CER and ETF take the 20th anniversary of the SSDC Railways as an occasion to look back and celebrate the joint work of rail employers’ and workers’ representatives in Europe.
