Single European Railway network: S&Ds welcome modernisation but call for stronger protection of workers’ rights (EN/DE/ES)

After years of negotiations, the European Parliament and the Council of the EU have finally agreed on reforms to Europe's railway network so that there will be no more technical differences between EU member states and passengers will be able to travel between different European cities with a single ticket.
The fourth Railway Package has two pillars, one technical and one political. The European Parliament voted on the technical pillar today and on the political pillar by the end of the year.

This broadcast-quality package contains 1 ready-to-air video, 2 B-rolls and stockshots.

The package in details:

  • Interview with Ismail Ertug, S&D Spokesperson on transport and tourism (audio EN/DE)
  • Interview with Inés Ayala Sender, S&D Spokesperson on the technical pillar of the railway package (audio ES)
  • Stockshots (European railway network)
