On 13-15 September in Tallinn, Estonia was held the first seminar of “Fair Aviation for All” project. It was attended by activists from all over Europe and was dedicated to the EU and international regulatory framework on social rights and labour standards in aviation. FTTUB sent two representatives to the training – Antonia Panayotova and Elitsa Bikova.
This two-year ETF project with the financial support of the EU is aimed at capacity building and educating workers’ representatives to understand better the current regulatory framework in order to be able to come up with concrete proposals vis-à-vis the EU institutions, the Member States and the other stakeholders. In preparation for the main events of the project, a desk research will be performed by an external consultant on the regulatory framework of EU and international aviation with a special focus on social rights and labour standards, taking into account EU-level legislation, as well as the documents of the International Labour Organisations (ILO) and International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
The main events of the project are three seminars on EU and international regulatory framework on social rights and labour standards in aviation and on its strengths and loopholes. The third seminar of the project will take place in Varna, Bulgaria next June. The project will end in November 2018 with a final conference “Fair Aviation for All”.
FTTUB is represented in the Steering committee of the project by Antonia Panayotova, FTTUB International Relations expert and ETF Civil Aviation Section Vice-president.
