Project overview

At both national and European level, we are faced with the task of guaranteeing solidarity-based representation and expression of workers’ interests during the crisis.

Worker representation bodies must be strengthened in such a way that they can act together and exercise their rights to information, consultation and participation. It is especially important that they have instruments and strategies enabling them to better prepare workers for restructuring and protect them from negative consequences as far as possible.
