CER-ETF Joint Statement - Mobility Package – Ensure fair intermodal competition

In view of the proposed Mobility Package, and in particular the modifications to Regulation (EC) no 561/2006 with regards to driving time, rest periods and breaks, the social partners in the rail sector express great concern that the balance between transport modes regarding working time conditions for mobile workers will be further disrupted.

In this joint Declaration, CER and ETF urge the European Parliament and the Council of Transport Ministers to deliver on the promise of promoting sustainable modes of transport and take into consideration the overall impact of such modifications.
