On 19th-20th of September 2019 CESI and its member organisations are meeting in Palermo, Italy, for the forthcoming CESI Academy launching event addressing the topic of “Precarious work – empowering trade unions to address the new challenges” #noprecariouswork.
The aim of the meeting is to:
- take stock of the precarious working conditions encountered at national level in CESI members’ organisation (root causes, trends, multiplicity of factors, loopholes in the system);
- highlight the interlink between precarious work and the absence of social rights – with the severe impact on the concerned workers and the societies as a whole;
- discuss and propose effective remedies to provide fair employment conditions and access to social rights. The focus will be on the EU and the national legislative frameworks, best enforcement practices, challenges for efficient interest representation and the inclusive access to social protection.
The general frame of the conference is outlined below.
19th September, Thursday, 15:00 – 18:30
