Priority 1: Policies and tools for the future of Europe

Description

To prevent wage and social dumping in Europe, wage convergence and coordination is necessary. How can trade unions promote wage policies leading to less competition between the national economies of the EU? Along with coordinated collective bargaining, minimum wages can play an important role.

For more united wage policies, the different types of minimum and living wages as well as the idea of an EU minimum or living wage should be debated.
