Last week, aviation week was held at the ETF, where we gathered our members from JAC, GSC and ATM Committees in Brussels for their specific sector meetings, the Civil Aviation Section meeting, and the Civil Aviation Sectoral Social Dialogue.
The aviation industry needs an ambitious decarbonisation plan with people at its centre. ETF lays out key principles in its sustainable aviation vision.
The sustainable aviation vision of the European Transport Workers’ Federation.
The ETF makes it clear: there is still no endorsement from the Provisional Council of EUROCONTROL for the staff regulations reform and the European ATM community will not stand for a forced or unfair implementation of lesser working conditions.
Successful implementation of the Single European Sky directly depends on the adoption of a social and human dimension roadmap for the SES that can only be achieved with the full commitment of all parties.
Air safety goes hand in hand with workers’ rights. EUROCONTROL workers face threats of worsening working conditions in what should be Europe’s air safety nerve center.
TRAN Committee position in support of controversial Single European Sky 2+ and Performance Review Body reforms of the air traffic management sector favours liberalisation, ignoring workers’ concerns, and showing little consideration for the social and human consequences the major reform will have.
