Several topics will be discussed during the event such as the ETUC’s legal engagement over the years, the opportunities of enhancing the European and international dimension of trade unions’ legal networking or the role of the Council of Europe and in particular of the European Social Charter and the European Committee of Social Rights in the protection and promotion of trade unions’ rights. Participants will also have the opportunity to hear and debate on human rights protection during the pandemic, on human rights due diligence, on the role of trade unions in the changing world of work, but also on the access for the self-employed to collective bargaining and how to promote collective bargaining through the European Union initiatives on minimum wage and gender pay transparency.
