Bargaining and organising – join the debate on 27 September

Europe

EPSU’s recruitment and organising (R&O) team has arranged a webinar at 13.00 (CET) on 27 September to discuss the links between organising and collective bargaining. It will include practical examples from EPSU affiliates in Finland (JHL) and Germany (ver.di). Pertti Paajanen, JHL’s director of organisational affairs will talk about the union’s successful R&O campaigns and the interaction between recruitment and collective bargaining and industrial action. Ver.di activist Silvia Habekost will explain how the union succeeded in reaching collective agreements on staffing levels in two big public hospitals in Berlin while also doubling the number of trade union members. Please register before 23 September by sending an email to Monica Avram at mavram@epsu.org. You will be sent a link to connect in the days before the event.
