EU sources -Transport workers fight for quality railway services -February 25, 2014

European railway workers gathered in Strasbourg to call for quality railway services as the European Transport Workers’ Federation organised a demonstration in front of the European Parliament. New proposals of the European Commission will lead to further liberalisation and fragmentation in the sector. The ETF stated that this has to be rejected because it will undermine the accessibility, affordability and quality of railway passenger services. And enhanced competition will inevitably lead to cost-cutting measures that put increased pressure on working conditions and employment.
