Port labour

ETF Open letter to Transport Commissioner on the reality of port work

Ports are critical to European economies and so is port work. It is indeed in everybody’s interest to have efficient and competitive ports. The Spanish dispute reopened a debate that had been kept somehow silent for some time, about the competitiveness of European ports and the role of port labour.

We feel therefore the need to state our points of view on the reality of ports and port work in Europe.


Dockers’ training and qualifications

Training and qualifications are a core topic for the ETF Dockers’ Section. This project gathered and disseminated knowledge on the different training and qualification systems in place in the EU, making ETF and our affiliates leading experts on the issue. We also organised debates with our partners, such as port authorities and operators, along with training centres and institutional actors.
