Women are seriously under-represented in the workforce of the European railway enterprises. The European social partners for rail are calling for action to promote better integration and participation of women in the railway sector.
These annual reports offer a statistical view on women’s position in the rail sector, which is a unique tool in the transport sector in Europe. They also promote and monitor the implementation of the CER-ETF Joint Recommendations for a better representation and integration of women in the railway sector.
ETF and CER will negotiate an Autonomous Agreement to promote women in the rail sector. The Women in Rail Task Force has been given the mandate to prepare the negotiations that should start in the second half of 2019.
