Launch of trade union rights project


On 25-26 May EPSU, along with the European trade union federations for police (EuroCOP) and military personnel (EUROMIL), organised a conference to launch a new project on trade union rights. The project will explore the extent to which public service trade unions face limitations or bans on their rights to organise, negotiate and take industrial action. The project will also focus on transposition of the Transparent and Predictable Working Conditions Directive which includes an article allowing governments to exclude certain groups of public service workers from parts of the directive. Over 90 representatives from the three federations attended the conference which will be followed in the autumn with a series of regional seminars.
