UITP, ITF partner to promote public transit globally

Posted on December 3, 2013

The International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) and the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) signed a historic memorandum of understanding in Brussels with the combined vision of promoting the development of high quality public transport globally.

Via the memorandum of understanding, ITF and UITP have agreed to work together to promote the development and expansion of public transport worldwide as a motor for sustainable growth and the creation of green jobs as well as environmental protection in reducing congestion and pollution.

ITF and UITP convene to work together to develop joint recommendations in vocational training, staff security and the promotion of formal, and the reduction of informal, employment in public transport.

The two organizations also agree to represent the interests of public transport employers and workers in international organizations to promote the high quality employment that public transport offers in urban areas.
