Organising road

Road transport is a cross-border activity; this calls for cross-border cooperation between trade unions to defend drivers’ rights due to the increasing complexity of mobile workers’ issues. In 2017, the ETF set up an International Trade Union Cooperation Office gathering five trade unions from Belgium, Denmark, Romania and Sweden. The aim? To assist in organising and defending Romanian truck drivers working abroad to ensure that employers respect their national and European rights!
