'Young TU Leaders': week two in Brussels

The second week of the ‘European training for young TU leaders’ course took place on 20-24 February 2017, in Brussels . Participants had the opportunity to learn more about the work of the trade unions at the European level.

They discussed the ETUC platform on the future of Europe with Peter Scherrer and visited two of the European trade union federations, IndustriAll and EPSU. The group also met representatives of Belgian unions in Molenbeek and participated in a tour of the EU quarter organised by the Corporate Europe Observatory.

They received feedback from ETUI Director Philippe Pochet on the group projects they are doing on topics such as mobility, decent work for youth, the gender pay gap and organising. The last training week is scheduled for 12-16 June this year and will take place in Dublin.
