On 31 May ended successfully the Third Sports Festival of FTTUB, which traditionally took place at Albena. As already mentioned, this time both the sports teams and the sports categories were more numerous than last year, which means that at the end we had a record number of champions!
All participants celebrated their successful performance at a gala dinner, where the winners were congratulated and awarded by members of the Board of FTTUB and personally by the President of FTTUB Ekaterina Yordanova and the deputy chairman Ivan Drazhev. After thanking the participants and organizers of the sports festival, Ms Yordanova addressed the audience with a call to preserve and bring the momentum from the sport field to the workplace. Stressing on the festival’s nature as a successful outcome of effective social dialogue and as an expression of the joint efforts of trade unions and employers together to take care of transport workers’ health, the President of FTTUB turned to team officials to convey her, FTTUB management’s and members’ gratitude to heads of companies who supported the Third National Sports Festival. At the end of her closing address she did not fail to remind everyone present that Sofia and Bulgaria will be hosting the forthcoming World Congress of the International Transport Federation (ITF) in August and to urge everyone to take time for monitoring the Congress unless directly, at least by visiting the sites of the Congress, ITF and FTTUB.
Unionists, athletes, transport workers celebrated the end of the season, and enjoyed the delicious food and drinks and an extensive entertaining program.
Preparations for the next year field event begin today!
