IRU nominates Florence Berthelot
Building on its role as the officially recognised representative of road transport employers’ at the European Union level, IRU has assumed the chairmanship of EU’s road transport SSD committee and nominated Ms Florence Berthelot, general delegate of the French national federation of road transport (FNTR), as chair.
“The social partnership between ETF (European transport workers’ federation) and IRU, who alternately preside the SSD Committee, is crucially important to help improving social and operational framework conditions for drivers and companies in the EU. We are very pleased that Florence Berthelot will lead the SSD Committee, with her successful experience of cooperating with trade unions in France,” said IRU General Delegate to the EU, Matthias Maedge.
“The social sector dialogue is one of the main pillars of the European Union construct. I am honoured to have been chosen to preside over the sectoral social dialogue committee on road transport,” said Ms Berthelot. (mw)
