As you are all aware, at the ETF Executive Committee Meeting in May 2015 we jointly decided to launch the Fair Transport Europe Campaign. We took this decision because we are determined to raise awareness across Europe about the deplorable working and living conditions facing so many European workers and in particular in the transport sector. With this campaign we aim to obtain commitment from the European decision makers for real change and fair transport in Europe.
At the time of writing almost 150,000 signatures have been collected from European citizens in support of our campaign. Belgium was the latest country in the list to go beyond its minimum target next to Denmark and Sweden.
But the deadline for collecting signatures within the frame of the European Citizens’ Initiative tool, 14 September 2016, is approaching fast. We therefore call upon all ETF affiliates to make a final effort to promote the campaign and give the total number of signatures collected in the EU Member States a strong push. It will further strengthen our voice vis-à-vis the European Institutions and allow us to demonstrate the wide support the campaign for fair transport in Europe receives.
