The ETUC pay rise campaign, the European pillar of social rights, trade with Canada, the consequences of Brexit and the rise of the extreme right were issues a delegation of the Swedish union SSR discussed with EPSU’s General Secretary. Working time, the impact of digitalisation, addressing the gender pay gap, ending social dumping and preventing exploitation of refugees and migrant workers are concerns of workers in all European countries. A key expectation is that the European Union defends and promotes social dialogue, collective bargaining and trade union rights. The union’s team shared its remarkable experience with growing the membership and strengthening the union work.
The meeting took place on 18 January 2017 in Brussels.
