ITF welcomes Pakistani rail union
08 Aug 2019
The Railway Workers Union (open line) (RWU) of Pakistan has joined the ITF.
Despite political turmoil in the country, the RWU has campaigned hard to keep Pakistan’s railways in public ownership, grown its membership and successfully applied to join the ITF.
The RWU has developed to organise and represent railway workers across Pakistan.
ITF Inland transport assistant secretary Janina Malinovska said: “The RWU is a welcome member of the ITF family. The RWU will defend its members through global experience and resources. For example, to improve rail safety the RWU can demand safety clauses in its collective bargaining agreements, and call for union representatives to be included in the investigation process.”
