    During the week of 6-12 October 2014, unions and their members will come together to take part in the ITF Action week.

    Under the slogan ‘Transport workers fighting back! Organising globally!’ unions will organise a variety of activities to:

    • highlight important issues that affect road transport and railway workers
    • emphasise the importance of belonging to a union

    We urge all road transport and railway workers including passenger and freight, mobile and non-mobile workers to take part in Action week.

    Key dates: 

    The ITUC World day for decent work is on 7 October 2014.

    Container safety action day
    On 9 October 2014, the ITF is asking its road, rail, maritime and dockers’ unions to organise activities to raise awareness around container safety. This action day will mark the start of a cross-sectional campaign that ITF is leading. Read more about container safety.
