The aim of this representativeness study is to identify the relevant national and supranational social actors (that is, trade unions and employer organisations) in railways and urban public transport, and to show how national actors relate to the sector’s European interest associations of labour and business.
The impetus for this study, and for similar studies in other sectors, arises from the aim of the European Commission to identify the representative social partner associations to be consulted under the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) and to be eligible for participation in European sectoral social dialogue committees.
The effectiveness of the European social dialogue depends on whether its participants are sufficiently representative in terms of the sector’s relevant national actors across the EU Member States.
