carried motion
Carried motion

Received from:

Congress welcomes the European Transport Workers’ Federation Fair Transport Campaign, re-launched earlier this year, and expresses full support for the ETF’s initiatives that seek to eradicate social dumping and secure decent work and quality services in all forms of transport. Congress notes that many workers in the European transport sector – and in shipping in particular – are exposed to extraordinary levels of exploitation, social dumping and unfair competition, which undermine their job security, pay and conditions. Congress also notes that transport workers often experience excessive working hours, stress, fatigue and substandard working conditions and urges the TUC to give full support to the Fair Shipping element of the ETF Fair Transport campaign, which seeks to create a European maritime space without social dumping and decent terms and conditions for all crew.
