Our Projects

Cooperation as a key to overcoming challenges in the field posting of workers from care, construction, transport and agriculture sectors

The project aims to enhance the enforcement of fundamental rights for posted workers while ensuring their free and fair movement. It focuses on overcoming barriers and difficulties in monitoring and implementing the Posting of Workers Directive in sectors such as care, construction, transport, and agriculture. Planned activities include expert working sessions to identify problems and propose solutions, training for workers, employers, and state organizations, and co-organizing the EU Labour Mobility Congress. The project aims to achieve better protection for posted workers, promote the use of the Internal Market Information system (IMI), improve information availability and transparency, and foster cooperation and dialogue among stakeholders.

MOBILEurope: Collective bargaining for mobile workers in Europe under the COVID19 – cases of frontier, seasonal and migrant workers

The project focuses on the challenges faced by mobile workers in essential sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic. It highlights the shortcomings in the internal market and the need for coordinated measures. The research aims to improve expertise in industrial relations, particularly in employment, working conditions, and social protection for frontier, seasonal, and migrant workers. The project will provide country-specific comparative studies and recommendations for further development in Europe.

Our past Projects

Dealing with stress in the workplace: adapting transnational information and consltation mechanisms for involvement of public service workers in decision making on employment and working conditions

Public service workers’ involvement in social dialogue is crucial due to the challenges posed by changing economic, social, and security conditions. The advent of Public Service 4.0 and digitization is transforming public administration, affecting employee working conditions. Staff and budget cuts have increased workloads, particularly for front-line workers. This, coupled with reduced benefits, creates a constant state of uncertainty, stress, and pressure.

Employee involvement has been found to enhance productivity and well-being. To address these issues, a project has been initiated involving public service employers and unions from several countries. The goal is to improve employee involvement practices, reduce work-related stressors, and negotiate better terms and conditions. Ultimately, this aims to alleviate the negative impacts of the precarious work environment, including stress, fear, physical illness, marital strain, anxiety, and depression.

Together. Building the future of worker participation in health service sector

The project involves organizations from Spain, Italy, Macedonia, Serbia, and Latvia. Its goal is to increase employee involvement in the health service sector by equipping representatives with skills and tools for active participation in decision-making. The project addresses the challenges faced by health service employees, such as frequent changes in regulations, increasing patient demands, and low salaries. By providing training and developing a participation model, the project aims to empower employees and improve job satisfaction. Activities include meetings, training, publication of the model, a conference, and an evaluation meeting.

Role of collective bargaining in shaping work-life balance in public service sector – challenges and

Our project aims to improve expertise in industrial relations by focusing on collective bargaining in the public sector and work-family research. We will analyze Spain, Greece, Portugal, Poland, and Serbia to understand the effects of economic crises and austerity measures on socio-economic changes. Through collaboration with trade unions and research organizations, we will gather empirical data from interviews, focus groups, and surveys to explore the role of collective bargaining in shaping work-life balance in the public service sector. The project supports the European Pillar of Social Rights and will provide country-specific comparative studies with recommendations for further development in Europe.

Effective tackling of the economic crisis and the role of workers and social partners in public sector

The project activities will contribute to addressing consequences of the economic crisis amid COVID 19. Member States took action to minimize contagion and to support healthcare systems, such as by introducing applications and platforms to facilitate continuance of work. Such transformation will lead to new digitally oriented company strategies, labor market needs will shift and requirement of knowledge of digitalization processes will rise.
