The Austrian Chamber of Labour in principle welcomes the reduction goals set out in the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy, which include a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by 2050.
The strategy is far less clear and tangible with respect to over 10 million transport workers. Binding rules or clear goals are lacking for their working conditions, although "slave-like conditions" are still the norm for many transport workers. Transport workers need their labour to be reappraised, with uniform rules and improvements in working conditions. There is a pressing need for reevaluation of labour in the transport sector.
