EU Sources - Transport workers rally for fair transport - April 30, 2017

Trade union activists from road passenger and freight transport gathered together in the European quarter at the Schuman roundabout to hold the European Commission responsible for the future of the driver profession and of the road transport sector. The trade unions, affiliated to the European Transport Federation, criticise the fact that the planned measures by the EU Commission for the road sector are exclusively market oriented and contain no measures to improve the living and working conditions of drivers. The unrestricted mobility of goods and people is regarded as one of the key instruments for single market integration and more growth. However, the liberalisation process is by no means accompanied by a harmonisation of employment and social standards.
