On September 19 and 20, the Board of Directors of the European Train Drivers Union was held in Madrid, Spain.
In it, the President of ALE, Juan Jesús García Fraile, has talked and discussed the course of our Organization, the present and future challenges that arise in the short term.
Safety and Liberalization of passenger transport by rail have been the main topics of debate.
Many times we have remarked that Safety in Railways focuses our efforts and once again we, all the ALE member unions, jointly emphasize that an adequate transposition of the 4th Railway Package must be made, where the Safety Directive takes a vital relevance for the representation of the traindrivers in Europe.
We have marked the line to follow and proposed different actions both at European and national level, always keeping in mind the improvement of the working, social and economic conditions of the traindrivers.
