Precarious Work and Union Strategies

Chapter
Part of the Prekarisierung und soziale Entkopplung - transdisziplinäre Studien book series (PSETS)

Abstract

On the occasion of the 2010 SUPI conference, union strategies in view of the ever increasing share of precarious jobs in overall employment was a topic of general discussion. Starting point were the indispensable elements of the social dimension of European integration, namely
  • the limitation or containment of economic and other forms of inequality,

  • a fair distribution of chances by equal access to continuous education, training, and skill development throughout life,

  • a robust welfare system that provides effective social-protection to all citizens, but especially to the most vulnerable.
