On January 25 2023, the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF) hosted the EU Transport Commissioner Adina Vălean and the European Parliament’s TRAN Committee coordinators – Marian-Jean Marinescu (EPP), Petar Vitanov (S&D), Ciarán Cuffe (Greens/EFA) and Elena Kountoura (The Left) – in a panel discussion on the “Future for Transport”.

In front of an audience of policymakers, transport attachés of the national permanent representations to the EU, representatives of employers’ associations and other transport stakeholders, the debate centred on the causes of and possible solutions to the structural issues facing transport and transport workers, revolving mainly around the unprecedented labour shortages and the deteriorating working conditions and salaries in transport.
