Jun. 05, 2009 EPSU vice president and president of Finnish public services union JHL, Tuire Santamäki-Vuori will be introducing the debate on collective bargaining on Tuesday 9 June. The resolution highlights the need to protect and strengthen collective bargaining rights and structures and work to achieve real increases in pay and improvements in the pay and conditions of members. It re-affirms EPSU’s commitment to support its affiliates in ending the scandal of low pay across many parts of the public services, not just through collective bargaining but also by campaigning for higher legal minimum wages where they exist. The resolution also highlights action to tackle discrimination at work whether that is the discrimination that underlies the gender pay gap or the discrimination that sees many migrant workers and ethnic minorities trapped in precarious employment. The resolution covers several other key areas, including public procurement, pensions, sectoral social dialogue and co-ordinating of activity in European works councils.[Read more at > EPSU (EN, FR, DE, ES, IT, SV, RU)-> http://www.epsu.org/r/349] There is background on some of the issues in the resolution on the EPSU website.
