WE-TRANSFORM 5th Stakeholder Forum Workshop
POLICY AGENDA FOR WORKERS' TRANSITION INTO AUTOMATED AND DIGITAL TRANSPORT SERVICES
13-14 June 2023 | Vienna, Austria
Venue: Austria Flemings Hotel Wien-Stadthalle Neubaugürtel 26-28, 1070 Vienna, Austria
The EU H2020 project WE-TRANSFORM aims at creating an action-oriented policy agenda to prepare for the automation transition and the related transformation of the workforce in the transport sector.
To do so, WE-TRANSFORM has established an effective dialogue with all parties involved, including workers and employers across all transport modes, and leveraged stakeholders’ knowledge and experiences to co-create the policy agenda.
The first phase of the project focused on analysing the state-of-the-art and initial stakeholders’ input regarding barriers to digitalization, the negative and positive impacts on workers, and their skills, and also existing initiatives to facilitate the transition.
The second phase of the project has now started with the formulation of an action-oriented policy agenda defining the specific policies related to the main themes defined as the key to minimising the impacts of transport digitalisation and automation on the workers.
The workshop will both inform on the project's progress to date and include four topics for discussion and co-creation.
The discussion will be organised around the following themes:
- Public regulation and contractual bargaining
- Industrial governance
- Training and reskilling
- Minimisation of labour exclusion and exploitation.
This workshop is targeted at public authorities and policymakers, workforce organisations, trade unions and workers, and transport operators, across all transport modes. We also invite representatives from other sectors forerunners in the digital transition, such as banking or tourism, to join the discussion.
