Celebrating European social dialogue in the railway sector

Celebrating European social dialogue in the railway sector

Tuesday, 12 November 2019

Existing since 1972, the railway social dialogue is one of the longest-standing in Europe. As part of the reform and the strengthening of the European sectoral social dialogue, the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER) and the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF) reconfirmed this dialogue between employers and workers of the railway sector at European level in 1999, by jointly establishing the Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for Railways (SSDC Railways).

In this year of renewal for the European Union, CER and ETF take the twentieth anniversary of the SSDC Railways as an occasion to look back and celebrate the joint work of rail employers’ and workers’ representatives in Europe.”
