Trade union and leadership renewal


The precariat is growing throughout the world, and can now be found in every country and in every professional group. TUs have to come up with new approaches enabling effective representation of precarious workers, helping to restore their workers’, social and human rights.

The training will focus on describing the situation regarding precarious workers in respective countries and on relevant EU policies, and will examine the best ways to reach and approach precarious workers, based on an exchange of experience and ideas.
