CER engagement for more diversity

CER engagement for more diversity

In 2019 CER entered into the negotiations of a social partners’ agreement to promote the employment of women in the railway sector, together with the European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF). 

Women represent only a little more than 21% of railway companies’ workforce, and the share is even lower for some professional categories. To avoid missing out on the many benefits – for all workers – deriving from a diverse and inclusive workplace, CER members have already put in place a wealth of concrete policies and measures in order to advance towards the goal of more diversity. This commitment is carried through at EU level to the social partner negotiations on the issue.

As representatives of rail employers and employees, CER, ETF and their national members are the best suited to jointly identify concrete actions that will attract more women to the sector and improve their working conditions inside companies. 

2020 will be a year of intense negotiations and the time to build momentum around this important theme!
