The statement, issued on 5th November, urged governments and employers to work with the ITF and its affiliate unions to protect transport workers during the pandemic, which is causing insecurity for working families around the world.
"We have a plan to protect jobs, income security and workers' rights and put a vision of sustainable transport at the heart of recovery.
We have a plan on how to implement universal health and safety standards in all transport sectors, with active workers' participation in the decision-making in their workplaces.
Our message to transport workers under threat is simple: join a union and build your power"
