Athens Declaration 18 September 2014
ETF casts a critical eye over the Mid-Term Review of the EU’s Maritime Transport Policy
On 5 June 2014, the Council of the EU adopted the conclusions formulated in the context of the mid-term review of the EU’s maritime transport policy until 2018 and outlook to 2020. The review has been based on the so-called Athens Declaration that sets EU shipping policy priorities for the coming years. While welcoming the importance the Council is attaching to the EU maritime transport sector, the ETF considers the Political Declaration as flawed and lacking a meaningful and unequivocal commitment to promote more and better jobs at sea for European domiciled seafarers, be they ratings or officers. more >>

ETF workshop on Low Fares Airlines at the ITF Congress (13 August 2014)
Low fares airlines have brought cheaper travel for the travelling public … BUT what is the price for the workers? Precariousness, imposed flexibility, social dumping, flags of convenience and union busting! Legacy airlines have to re-define their business model and worsen the terms and conditions of their workers to be able to compete. This is not the way forward for a sustainable aviation. Professor Peter Turnbull (University of Cardiff) will present findings of a study on the development of the labour market in the airline industry due to the development of low fares airlines. This research is part of project run by the ETF (co-funded by the EU). more >>
