EFFECT OF PRODUCTIVITY AND TECHNOLOGICAL PROGRESS ON TRANSPORT WORKERS

The report involves the analysis of the use of manpower resources in transport. Three introductory reports cover the conventional sectors of inland transport - road, rail and inland waterway. The review of road transport includes definitions of productivity and gives figures on productivity development. Consideration is then given to the industry's labor force and new developments in road haulage. The technological programme for inland water transport is described and mention made of the situation in Germany. The effects on crews are considered and trends and policy requirements outlined. The review of rail transport covers aspects including shunting, freight terminals, parcels, passenger stations and repair of rolling stock. A summary is given of the discussion which followed, the main topics of which are recruitment and stability of employment, the maintenance of job flexibility and the measures required. /TRRL/
