„Future of workplace relations: Opportunities and challenges for trade unions in Europe” - VS/2016/0407 

1.01.2017 - 31.03.2019

Short description: Trade union membership is crucial indicator of industrial relations systems. In general, they are strictly linked to the viability and effectiveness of collective bargaining, social dialogue and participatory collective labour relations. The project seeks to improve the expertise in the field of industrial relations, and will be focused mainly on the diagnosis and analysis concerning the decline in unionization in Europe. Thanks to cooperation between one of the players of industrial relations – trade unions, and researchers, we will conduct the research concerning the reasons of joining/not joining to trade unions, the opinion about effectiveness of trade unions, and new methods of encouraging people, especially youth to join trade unions. The project results will be disseminated across whole Europe.   

The main objective of the project is to identify the reasons of declining in unionization in Europe; perception of workers on trade union actions or the union “image”, to identify trends in organizing the workers in the unorganized sectors in Europe and to  elaborate best strategies and measures how to fight with this phenomenon.
