Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic is unprecedented: it is reshaping the world economy in a way that has never been seen before. At the centre of it are transport workers, who are keeping the world moving and linking supply chains, despite the crisis.

It is essential that workers are protected and supported to take the measures necessary to help control the spread of the virus.

Today more than ever, transport workers will ensure that essential supplies reach those who need them, people can return home and those who need to work can still get there or access hospitals for treatment. Public transport workers, truck drivers, warehouse workers, delivery drivers, aviation workers, dockers, seafarers and more will continue to work during this crisis.

Transport workers are vital to successfully responding to the challenge of Covid-19.
