European Trade Unions Action to Defend Labour & Trade Unions Rights (27-29 January 2015)

Trade unionists in charge of Labour Law and/or Social Dialogue are going to meet to reflect on the legal aspects related to austerity, TTIP, TISA, REFIT from 27 to 29 January in Brussels.

The reflection will start from violations of labour and trade unions rights that have already occurred. To do so, emblematic cases are going to be presented. The group will exchange on TTIP (ISDS), TISA & REFIT in terms of risk assessment of labour and trade unions rights violations. The international perspective will be heard. In fact, there are lessons to be drawn from the NAFTA and Transpacific Agreement experiences. The objective is to see how European trade union litigation strategy can be strengthened. The group will try and include the gender perspective as in fact, most research and publications do not include it. If included, it would open one more door of possible common trade union action for all.
