Equality and social cohesion


One of the priorities of the ETUC action plan is to defend and promote trade union rights in coordination with the ILO. However, many unions in Europe have difficulties using ILO mechanisms. The course will focus on how trade unions can use ILO standards and push for their implementation in their countries. Furthermore, it will look at the role of trade union alliances in respecting ILO standards.
