In 2014, the European Social Partners (UITP and ETF) signed joint recommendations to promote women’s employment in the urban public transport sector and set the ambitious target to increase the share of women employed from the average value of 17.5% in 2011 to at least 25% until 2020 and to 40% in 2035.
In order to assess and support the implementation of those joint recommendations, the European Social Partners developed WISE II, on “Women’s Employment and Gender Policy in Urban Public Transport Companies in Europe”. Within this project, a survey was organised among UITP and ETF members to follow-up the developments of women’s employment since 2010/2011 within the sector. In addition a joint conference was held to exchange experiences and disseminate good practices.
This guide illustrates the culminated results of the quantitative survey in the first period of 2016 between UITP and ETF members. It gives an overview of company policies and some “good practices” implemented within the sector both by companies and trade-unions, to promote the employment of female staff in the urban public transport sector.
