In their official response to the EC public consultation on Fishing Vessel Safety Directive, the Social Partners – ETF and Europeche – ask the European Commission to improve safety and health at sea.
Together with our European partners in sectoral social dialogue, we developed a Compendium of best practices to prevent or manage situations caused by disruptive passengers. It is the first document at the EU level presenting what aviation workers or authorities have successfully applied across Europe in civil aviation when confronted with disruptive passengers in the last few years.
As the EU Social Partners, ETF and ECSA have worked closely together for over two years under the joint WESS project for an attractive, smart and sustainable working environment in the shipping sector.
The Social Partners welcome the Commissioner’s open dialogue with the EU Social Dialogue Committee for Sea Fisheries and recognition of its unique role in addressing the social dimension of the CFP.
