On 10 January, the Transport Committee of the European Parliament has a crucial vote about the EU Mobility Package. These deliberations will have a major impact on bus and truck drivers’ work and rest schedule, on their wages and on the safety of all road users in Europe. Trade unions across Europe take actions this week to guarantee safety and fair working conditions for millions of EU citizens.
ATU, a Romanian ETF affiliate, is making sure that travellers in Bucharest know what is happening in Brussels this week. They are distributing leaflets to passengers using the public transport – metro, tram, bus – and the messages will be displayed on monitors in all stations of the Bucharest metro system. Thanks to this massive mobilisation and outreach, around 700 000 people will see our message and learn about MEPs’ crucial decision this week.
