Within its strategy of better defending self-employed workers in terms of rights, wages and social protection, the ETUC is engaged in the project “New trade union strategies for new forms of employment”.
From September 6 to 7, the second workshop in the framework of the mentioned project will bring together 30 tradeunionists from all over Europe to Paris with the aim of studying innovative ways to guarantee a better social protection to said category of workers.
The profile of the participants shought by the ETUC is trade union leaders and officers who are in charge of the issue of organizing and defending atypical workes – with special attention to self-employment – and trade union experts and representatives dealing with social protection. The participants will actively contribute to the debate by presenting the position and actions on social protection for atypical workers of their respective organisations.
The working languages will be English, French, Italian and Spanish (Spanish as passive).
