Urban Transport

Building stronger unions and fairer workplaces

Public transport affects everyone. It is an integral and essential part of the modern world. 

Yet not everyone has a say in how it is run, and for whose benefit. Too often public transport planning does not include the views of the real experts – workers and passengers. 

The ITF’s Our Public Transport programme aims to redress this. It is actively campaigning for public transport based on public ownership, public investment, secure jobs and union rights for workers in public and private employers.

Public transport workers and their unions are facing many issues around the world, organising and bargaining to win.

You can see more videos from the programme and also visit this map of ITF unions taking action to save and build public transport for all.
