Abstract: The importance of transport for human development is rather unchallenged. Transport is fundamental for the functioning of markets in general, and the labour market in particular, including the labour it needs for its own functioning. The aim of this article is to identify and assess key challenges in the labour market in the transport sector in the European Union, and present some disputable issues related to activities aiming at dealing with these challenges. First, the direct and indirect importance of transport for the European labour market is discussed. Then, the key challenges in the European labour market are identified. Finally, some potential directions of development and their possible impact on employment in the transport sector are discussed.
