EFFAT has received from the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF) an appeal to support the European Citizens’ Initiative Fair Transport Europe and we are asking your support to collect 1 million signatures by 14th September. Transport is vital to all Europeans.
It takes us to where we need to go, delivers our goods and creates economic growth.
However, working conditions in the European transport sector are being undermined and these practices have real and dire consequences, not only for the workers themselves, but also for companies that want to compete on quality of services rather than worsening working conditions. We are aware of the importance that this campaign is successful and call to you and all our affiliates to also support it by sending a direct mail to all your members with the text below.
All signatures count and we thank you in advance for taking action. Sign and read more on www.FairTransportEurope.eu
