Priority 4: Working conditions and job quality


In Europe, crowdworking (CW) and online platforms are a relatively new phenomenon. If unions don’t start to organise crowdworkers and negotiate their working conditions now, more jobs will be outsourced to crowd platforms and more workers will work in this totally unregulated area.

In this training course, we will exchange views on different types of crowd platforms, the work which is performed and the needs of crowdworkers.

Moreover, we will continue to develop ideas regarding union action on CW in Europe.
