Ministers Talk: The EU Mobility Package
Free Movement of Goods at the Expense of Truck Drivers?

Monday, 3 July 2017, 18:30h

Permanent Representation of Austria to the EU, 1st floor
Avenue de Cortenbergh 30, 1040 Bruxelles


Cornelia Primosch
(ORF Brussels) in talk with:

Jörg Leichtfried
, Austrian Federal Minister for Transport, Innovation and Technology

Mattias Landgren, Swedish State Secretary to the Minister for Infrastructure


At the beginning of this year, nine European Transport Ministers formed the Road Alliance in order to set an example for fair competition on the European roads and against social dumping. This initiative is supported by trade unions across Europe, who have been denouncing the often horrifying working conditions of truck drivers for years.

On May 31st, the Commission presented its proposals on the mobility package “Europe on the Move” to render road transport in Europe fairer and more sustainable. In the Commission's point of view, the proposed changes with regard to the posting of workers in the transport sector, cabotage, letter box companies, driving and rest periods should improve on one hand social protection of the employees and on the other hand the means of control available to the Member States.

But is the initiative really able to meet its goals? Will it contribute to the fight against social dumping on European roads? Or will the proposed package lead to further liberalisation of EU road transport?


On the Panel:

Jörg Leichtfried, Austrian Federal Minister for Transport, Innovation and Technology

Mattias Landgren, Swedish State Secretary to the Minister for Infrastructure

Jocelyn Fajardo, Deputy Head of Cabinet Violeta Bulc

Inga-Lena Heinisch, Political Adviser for Road Transport and Gender equality at ETF
(European Transport Workers´ Federation)

Karl Delfs, Confederal Secretary for Road Transport at vida (Austrian Trade Union for Transport and Services Workers)


The discussion will be held in German and English with simultaneous translation.

After the event, we invite you to a buffet.
