The final conference of the international research project BARSORIS: Bargaining for Social Rights at Sector Level of a research consortium involving CELSI, the University of Amsterdam, and other cooperating institutions took place in Brussels on November 24, 2014.
CELSI’s representative Maria Sedlakova and invited social partners from Slovakia, Mrs. Monika Kavecka and Mr. Miroslav Vlk (OZSaPA), Mr. Zsolt Lukac (ZSPS) and Mrs. Monika Benedekova (OZ KOVO) participated in the final conference of the international research project BARSORIS: Bargaining for Social Rights at Sector Level.
The conference was attended by representatives of the social partners from the EU Member States as well as officials of the EU institutions, European social partners and members of the EU sectoral committees and took place at the International Auditorium in Brussels on 24th November 2014.
In the conference, the challenges faced by the social partners in improving the quality of work through social dialogue initiatives at sector level were discussed. The focus was especially on the social partners’ experiences with improving the social rights of non-standard/vulnerable workers through collective bargaining and social dialogue in seven EU countries: Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Spain and the United Kingdom and four specific sectors: industrial cleaning, hospitals, construction, and temporary agency work.
The national report for Slovakia, written by Marta Kahancová and Monika Martišková will soon be available on the project’s webpage, together with all national reports and a comparative report: http://www.uva-aias.net/409
