ITF WOMEN RAILWAY WORKERS’ SURVEY
The International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) have launched an online survey specifically targeted at and for women railway workers.
The survey aims to identify in what roles and where women railway workers are employed and under what types of contracts, what issues and barriers they are confronted with in the workplace and what changes they would see as being important to make the railway sector more accommodating for them.
The findings will be discussed at an ITF online event in autumn 2022 with the aim of developing an action plan on gender equality in railways.
The online survey is open to women railway workers in all parts of the rail industry, this includes both passenger and freight transport as well as urban passenger rail, intercity rail, and cross-border rail.
It will take about 15 minutes to complete the survey and responses are completely anonymous. It is open now and until 31 May 2022.
The link to the survey is as follows: itfglobal.org/womenrailsurvey
