This study provides information designed to encourage sectoral social dialogue in railways and urban public transport. The aim of Eurofound’s series of studies on representativeness is to identify the relevant national and supranational social partner organisations in the field of industrial relations in selected sectors. The study identified the European Transport Workers’ Federation (EFT) (representing employees) and the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER), the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) and European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM) (representing employers) as the most important European-level social partner organisations in railways and urban public transport.

    Representativeness of the European social partner organisations: Railways and urban public transport

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    This study aims to provide the necessary information to encourage sectoral social dialogue in railways and urban public transport. Eurofound’s series of representativeness studies, carried out at the request of the European Commission, sets out to identify the relevant social partner organisations to be consulted under the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). The study thus identifies the relevant national social partner organisations in railways and urban public transport by means of both a top-down approach (listing the members of the relevant European associations) and a bottom-up approach through Eurofound’s Network of European correspondents.
