Aircraft and transport. EC continues to push for higher social standards
A report published today by the European Commission -ATTACHMENT
The European Commission has today published a report setting out a number of actions to further strengthen the social agenda in air transport. This unprecedented report highlights the main opportunities and challenges faced by aircrews (pilots and cabin crew) in Europe. Maintaining and promoting high social standards is a top priority for the EU's Aviation Strategy. This builds on the strong social agenda put forward by President Juncker. The cornerstone of this agenda is the European Pillar of Social Rights, adopted in 2017, which aims to ensure that existing social standards are fit for purpose in the 21st century labour market.
Violeta Bulc, Commissioner for Transport said: "The European Parliament, Member States, the aviation industry and social partners have called on the Commission to tackle the challenges aircrews in Europe face today. I am glad that we are delivering on this by putting forward a report that identifies concrete actions to maintain and promote high social standards in the aviation sector".
