After over 3 years of negotiations on November 5, 202 The Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER), representing railway sector employers, and the European Transport Workers' Federation (ETF), representing railway workers, officially signed the Women in Rail autonomous agreement aimed at promoting employment of women in the sector.

This agreement aims to attract more women to the rail sector and give women more protection and guarantee equal treatment in the workplace thanks to numerous measures agreed under the headlines of the general gender equality policy. These measures cover areas such as targets, how to attract more women to the sector, reconciling work and private life, promotion and career development, equal pay, health and safety, and work environment and prevention of sexual harassment and sexism.

The agreement entered into force upon signing and companies now have 12 months to establish a gender and diversity policy with 24 months to implement it. The agreement will then be reassessed by both parties.

Joost Korte, Director General of DG Employment, and Charlotte Norlund-Matthiessen from Commissioner Valean’s cabinet, who were both presents during the signing ceremony, congratulated the delegations and warmly welcomed the agreement. They underlined that this is a major achievement and particularly significant as it has been accomplished during the European Year of Rail.
