CESI: Empowering trade unions to address the new challenges

On September 19-20, CESI held a symposium on ”Precarious work: Empowering trade unions to address new challenges” in Palermo (Italy) conducted as part of the CESI Europe Academy.
The symposium took place in the context of the precarious working conditions encountered at the national level by CESI member organisations, highlighting the interlinks between precarious work, absence of social rights and effective remedies from trade unions’ side.

The event, moderated by Pierre Baussand, Head of the Eurofound Office Brussels and in collaboration with the Professional Trade Union Association (ANIEF), provided an opportunity to allow exchanges of views among affiliates and members of CESI from the other EU Member States, together with external experts.

As such, the discussions took stock of the current situation in different sectors, the applicability of EU and the national legislative frameworks, best enforcement practices, challenges for efficient interest representation and inclusive access to social protection.

The two days programme was divided into two parts: “The extent of precarious work” and “Approaches and solutions to end precarious work”.
