DECENT WORKING AND EMPLOYMENT CONDITIONS IN THE AVIATION SECTOR - IMPACT OF THE COVID-19 CRISIS ON AVIATION (DEBATE)
On July 8, 2021, a debate was held in the European Parliament, with the assistance of a representative of the European Commission, about the need to defend our social and labor conditions and avoid social dumping, with the intervention of two Spanish MEPs.
The questions asked by MEPs, were on the table largely thanks to the insistence and lobbying carried out by the unions that are part of the ETF, including SITCPLA, coordinated through said Federation.

Aviation unions call for universal access to COVID-19 vaccines and treatment.
ITF called this week for governments to pass an emergency waiver to grant universal access to Covid-19 vaccines, treatments and equipment.
The ITF Civil Aviation Section Committee raised urgent concerns at its meeting last week on vaccine inequality. The Committee stated strongly that this is an emergency, a moral question and an industrial question. As such, aviation unions must join the public calls for a waiver:
The recovery of aviation is tied to global recovery from the pandemic.
It is very clear we will not recover until everyone recovers.
