The Fédération Nationale des Chemins de Fer Tunisien has used the Action Day to organise an awareness campaign under the theme "Security of jobs" since the right to work and the right to safety are being threatened by economic changes. The union approached their members at railway stations where ITF materials were displayed. (Email report by Kalthoum Barkallah)

The Sovet Profsojua Zeleznodoroznikov I Transportnzh Stroitelei Ukrainy in Ukraine began its preparations for the Action Day in January, when a special order signed by the union and railway management was issued declaring their participation in the campaign. Several activities have been organised in the run-up to 13 March. These have included letters to local railway administrations, unannounced safety and technical inspections of trains by management and union representatives, and checking workers' conditions in Kharkiv and Poltava. In Lviv, a safety month has been held where a direct phone line was set-up for railway workers to discuss issues with the union. Activists in all six regions of the union have distributed leaflets and posters. Announcements via loudspeakers are being made at railway terminals during the Action Day in Odessa, Lviv and Donetsk to promote the safety campaign. Media coverage of the events have been very good.
