Meet the ITF young workers’ committee

“Trade unionists should ask young people what they need from the union and find out what our main problems are. We suffer from working in positions that are precarious, just as women and migrant workers do. If we’re not unionised, we won’t have the power to change our poor working conditions...”

Fátima Aguado Queipo, CC.OO, Spain 

Our dynamic, dedicated young workers’ committee represents a balance of sectors and regions, with an equal mix of young men and women working in the transport industry.

Itf is doing a good work in sensitizing the community and also helping the society to realize that women can do that what men can do even much better especially in the transport industry, I am a driver leader and has always been advocating for women and youths to be given egual opportunity in the industry and I believe any conference or event in future I would like to be part of the team
