Trade union and leadership renewal

Description

Organising / recruitment are a key priority for trade unions. Workers need voice and power to influence decisions at all levels, whether at the workplace, in a sector, in the economy or in society.

The focus of the activity will be on trade unions in Central and Eastern Europe and in particular in the health / social services sector. We will bring together local union leaders in a multi-country context to exchange experience, building on each others’ practices.

The course will be part of the EPSU training focus and a continuation of similar work undertaken in previous years. It provides continuity and a learning context.
