Fair working conditions

What is the
project about ?

The project addresses the growing issue of precarious work across Europe, examining it from different perspectives policies, politics, research, and, most importantly, social actors representing workers and structuring it along 4 types of actions :

Awareness raising

Expertise & capacity building

Representation of workers before national and European instances

Advocacy at the EU & national levels


The project consists of a series of opening/ closing events and an online platform for communication and training for CESI trade union members and EU workers in general to gain knowledge, express concerns, raise issues, and reflect on possible synergies to address together challenges related to precarious forms of work contracts in the EU.

CESI welcomes the commitment taken at the 1st day of the #EUSocialSummit21 on the 2030 Social Targets.

However, we find it unfortunate that the Summit is a closed event with few selected representatives and the voice of millions of workers is not present at this pivotal moment.

Today, the #PortoSocialSummit needs to make clear that a successful European Pillar of Social Rights also necessitates a resolute monitoring mechanism to trace concrete social progress back to it.
