Priority 4: Working conditions and job quality



In May 2017 the European Commission launched the revision of the social and market access legislation in road transport. It covers the Posting of Workers Directive and its application to mobile workers in road transport, road cabotage, the ‘letter-box company’ regulation and driving & rest time. The changes foreseen by the Commission would bring critical changes to the working and living conditions of drivers. This workshop aims to enable a better campaign for a social Mobility Package for better rights and protection of professional drivers.
