I am proud to be the general secretary of an organisation that represents transport workers at this time of need. The outbreak and spread of Covid-19 has once again served to highlight just how reliant humanity and global supply chains are on transport workers keeping the world moving.
Transport workers are often the unseen heroes, who are not always recognised for the sacrifices they make. But this crisis has shown the incredible contribution our members are making in the fight against Covid-19 around the world.
Without this dedication, we would see workers, including doctors and nurses, struggling to get to work, supply chains failing, and passengers stranded across the globe.
But I want to reassure you that the ITF and its affiliates are committed to ensure that we do everything possible to protect our workers, their families, and shine a light on the contribution so many transport workers are making.
