epsucob@ - EPSU’s collective bargaining network


EPSU’s collective bargaining network

Coordinating collective bargaining in the public services

Join the epsucob@ collective bargaining network

A network of public service unions - co-ordinating action to defend public service workers’ pay and conditions

1. epsucob@

EPSU policy is to try to coordinate wage policy objectives across Europe. A central element of its collective bargaining policy is, in line with ETUC policy, that affiliates should aim for pay increases that compensate for inflation and give workers a share in any increase in productivity.

EPSU has agreed and is continuing to develop a range of specific policies on collective bargaining covering pay, equal pay, low pay, lifelong learning, outsourcing, young workers and migrant workers.

In laying the foundations for co-ordinating collective bargaining, we have been improving the exchange of information on pay and conditions and negotiations. Central to this is the epsucob@ network. This brings together trade union officers from EPSU affiliates who are responsible for collective bargaining.

The aim of epsucob@ is to provide updated information on collective bargaining developments in the public services across Europe.

Contacts from each union send in short details of the results of negotiations in their sector. This can include pay increases, new working time arrangements or any other changes to pay and conditions. This information is then circulated to the other members of the network.

2. Become a part of the network

The members of the network receive a fortnightly email newsletter, epsucob@NEWS that provides short summaries of the latest developments in collective bargaining in the public services.

They are also sent an annual survey to find out the results of the latest round of collective bargaining as well as questionnaires on specific subjects, such as equal pay and lifelong learning.

In addition, the EPSU secretariat supplies the network with relevant social and economic information to support EPSU coordination policy and affiliates’ negotiation. If you are involved in collective bargaining in an EPSU-affiliated union then why not join the network?

Email your details to: rpond epsu.org and become part of the network.

3. Do you have any news for the network?

Please send EPSU brief details of any new developments in collective bargaining in your sector.
