WE-TRANSFORM 6th Stakeholder Forum Workshop
POLICY AGENDA FOR WORKERS TRANSITION IN AUTOMATED AND DIGITAL TRANSPORT SERVICES
When: September 27 and 28
Where: Turin, Italy
Venue: CASTELLO DEL VALENTINO at the POLITECNICO DI TORINO
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, WE-TRANSFORM 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 analysing 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 project is in its final phase: the formulation of an action-oriented policy agenda defining the specific policies related to the main themes defined as key to minimise the impacts of transport digitalisation and automation on the workers.
The workshop will both inform on the project progress to date and include the discussion of policies related to: (1) public regulation and contractual bargaining; (2) industrial governance; (3) training and reskilling; and (4) minimisation of labour exclusion and exploitation.
More information on the specific programme and logistics can be found below.

This workshop is targeted at public authorities and policy makers, workforce organisations, trade unions and workers, and transport operators, across all transport modes.
