Clearer rules for Transport legislation regarding social and market pillar
On Thursday the 10th of January, several measures, part of the EUs “Mobility Package”, were voted in the Transport and Tourism Committee after being referred back during the Plenary session of July 2018 for further consideration. However two measures have failed to be adopted because of the division of the political groups in their regard.
Yet ALDE Group MEPs were all united in their support for the proposals submitted by the rapporteurs, including Izaskun Bilbao Barandica, Basque MEP and Member of the Transport and Tourism Committee, who stated that: “Professionals and companies demand and need a European agreement to improve and harmonise the working conditions of the professionals. This is the only possible way to put an end to market fragmentation and social dumping in the sector. These are problems that hamper the efficiency and competitiveness of transport. We are going to continue to work towards an agreement with which we are all going to win"
