CER-ETF Agreement on working conditions

CER-ETF Agreement on working conditions

Tuesday, 27 July 2004

On 27 July, the Official Journal of the European Union published the Council Directive 2005/47/EC of 18 July 2005 on the Agreement between the Community of European Railways (CER) and the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF) on certain aspects of the working conditions of mobile workers engaged in interoperable cross-border services in the railway sector. The CER-ETF Agreement on working conditions is now Directive 2005/47/EC.

The directive enters into force on the 27th July and the Member States have now to transpose it into their national laws by three years at the latest. It means that the new rules will be mandatory for the whole railway sector by 27 July 2008.

You can find the directive and the agreement in your own language in the national edition of the Official Journal of the European Union by clicking below:
