Social Europe

Social Europe

Since the 2000s, Social Europe has experienced many backlashes and trade union rights have been weakened. We build trade union capacities and knowledge about the European social model and promote social dialogue by organizing regional tripartite and sectoral social dialogue activities. more

Trade Union Networks

Trade Union Networks

As the economic integration of Central Europe and Southeast Europe deepens and competition between countries increases, the need for coordination of trade union representatives on working conditions and wages across countries and companies rises. more

Organizing Strategies

Organizing Strategies

Building new membership is a key task for trade unions in the region in order to regain organizational power. We support the development of innovative organizing strategies through an integrated approach which entails a rethinking of broader trade union objectives and ways of operating. more

Trade Union Youth

Trade Union Youth

Young workers are under-represented in trade unions across Europe. We promote the participation of young trade union members on regional and European level by supporting regional network meetings and the development of communication tools. more
