A conversation on the future of the EU’s agricultural model between:
- Kristjan Bragason, General Secretary of the European Federation of Food, Agriculture and Tourism Trade Unions (EFFAT)
- Tony Musu, Senior Researcher in Occupational Health and Safety at the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI)
On the menu: the shortcomings of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the promise of the ‘Farm to Fork’ Strategy, and the mass use of pesticides despite their toxic properties. What can trade unions do to protect the millions working in one of Europe’s most dangerous sectors?
This is the first of a series of conversations to celebrate the publication of HesaMag #23, the ETUI’s biannual health and safety magazine, on this issue’s theme of ‘Workers in the food chain’.
The event is in English.
