POLICY AGENDA FOR WORKERS TRANSITION IN AUTOMATED
AND DIGITAL TRANSPORT SERVICES

Flemings Hotel Wien-Stadthalle
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, WETRANSFORM has established an effective dialogue with all parties involved, including workers and employers across all transport modes, and leverage stakeholders’ knowledge and experiences in order to co-create the policy agenda.
The first phase of the project focused on analyzing the state-of-the-art and initial stakeholders’ input regarding barriers to digitalization, the negative and positive impacts for workers, their skills, but 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 key to minimize the impacts of transport digitalization and automation on the workers.
The workshop will both inform on the project progress to date, and include four topics for discussion and cocreation, namely: (1) public regulation and contractual bargaining; (2) industrial governance; (3) training and reskilling; and (4) minimization of labour exclusion and exploitation.
This workshop is targeted at public authorities and policy makers, workforce organisations, trade unions and
workers, and transport operators, across all transport modes. We are also inviting representatives from other
sectors forerunners in the digital transition, such as banking or tourism, to join the discussion.
