Building union power – first Congress briefing

Cover EPSU Congress Briefing nr1 Building Union Power

(5 October 2018) Strengthening the voice and influence of workers on decisions that affect us in the work place, have an impact on our families and on our communities is one of the major issues at the EPSU Congress. This first Congress briefing is how we build that power.  It is about recruitment and organising of workers. The briefing gives examples of the initiatives of unions and the support, advice and training as they develop new strategies and campaigns to boost membership. It outlines EPSU’s future plans over the next Congress period as highlighted in the draft Programme of Action.

Further briefings will be published over the coming weeks and months We expect that they will assist in preparing delegates and others for the crucial debates we face. The next five will cover:

  • Solidarity
  • Fighting privatisation
  • Getting to grips with digitalisation
  • Gender equality
  • Fighting for tax justice.

All in English, French, German, Spanish, Swedish and Russian.
