The Lisbon Treaty and its impact on trade unions and workers’ rights

The impact of the Lisbon Treaty on Social Europe will very much depend on the political processes of the European and national institutions but also on the commitment of trade unions, workers’ representatives and citizens to influence such processes in order to defend their rights.

In this respect the ETUI organised a course for trade union representatives on ‘The Lisbon Treaty and its impact on trade unions and workers’ rights” which was held in Brussels on 8-9 July 2010. 25 participants representing 13 trade union confederations from 8 EU countries and the European Transport Workers’ Federation were offered the possibility to gain a better understanding of the Treaty and its impact on trade unions and workers’ rights, to become aware of the ETUC views on the Treaty, to exchange information about national trade union activities and to consider trade union strategies for multiplying national and sectoral activities on the Treaty.
