Brexit: Respecting drivers’ working conditions

Road Transport between the UK and the Continent is essential but, unless professional drivers are guaranteed a smooth border crossing and a prompt and regular return home, less and less of them will be willing to transport goods and people across the Channel. In view of the new Brexit agreement, the ETF is keeping a close eye on developments and working to ensure the wellbeing of our drivers.

ETF stands in solidarity with UK workers, their trade unions and all affected by Brexit

No matter what happens with Brexit, the UK will remain a European country and UK transport workers will always be part of the ETF family. A hard or chaotic Brexit could spell disaster, so we call on leaders to reach a solution that protects citizens’ and workers’ rights. A statement from our Executive Committee sets out our priorities.
