Encounter of ETF and ECSA with the objective to increase the participation of the women in the field of the shipping

Tonka Cupic: "in order to attract more women in the field we would have to improve the conditions of job for all"

Currently only 2% of the force marine job available for the fleet of the EU are constituted by women. They have emphasized the labor organization European Transport Workers Federation, (ETF) and the shipowning association European Community Shipowners' Associations (ECSA) that today they have had an encounter in order to discuss about the possible solutions in order to increase the participation of the women in the field of the marine transport in Europe.

The arguments have been centralized on the marine formation and the development of the career for the women, let alone on the recruitment and the permanence of the women in the marine field. "If we want strong marine clusters, it prospers and social sustainable in Europe - it has found the general secretary of the ECSA, Martin Dorsman - the genre diversity would have to be a guiding principle as means in order to attract and to withhold new talents in the marine field. The models tenured feminine in charges of high level can help to send a message to all the field, that is that the women have a place in this traditionally dominated field from the men".

"In order to attract more women in the field - Tonka Cupic has asserted, representative of the marine transports of ETF near the Committee Women of ETF - we would have to improve the conditions of job for all. The reconciliation between job and familiar life and the prevention of the harassments is fundamental for the recruitment but also for the maintenance of a greater number of marine women and in order to not only allow they to develop a career in the field of the shipping".

To the encounter, besides the representatives of ETF and the ECSA, they have participated delegated of a range wide of interested parts, as the EU commission, European economic and social Council, the UK Merchant Navy Training Board, representatives of the French and British institutions, investigators of the Paris Descartes University and representatives of the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER).
