TAO-AFIs SUCCESSFUL AND ONGOING ACTIONS
We were the first union to address the problem (conference in February 2016 with more than 500 attendants) and to follow the legal and political evolution of the case, as well as assisting the concerned colleagues and their families. Owing to our efforts, the Commission decided to keep the British staff beyond the UK's exit from EU.
TAO-AFI was the first union to integrate the notions of clean air and sustainable mobility in its programme. Some of our demands, such as 100% reimbursement of tram/train/bus season tickets, biking indemnity, Commission's actions to improve the quality of air in Brussels are likely to be included in the 2019 regional mobility plan, with the set-up of the Schumann pedestrian area. Our union conducted a strong awarness campaign, calling for collective responsibility aimed at changing the development model through the implementation of concrete measures.
