Discussing trade union renewal during the ETUC Congress in Berlin, May 23, 2023
Published on June 5, 2023
The European Trade Union Institute - ETUI organized a very stimulating discussion on trade union renewal during the 2023 ETUC congress. In the panel discussion, CELSI's Managing Director Marta Kahancová called for more trade union involvement in just transition processes as a renewal opportunity at various levels: unions co-determining just transition policies, expanding themes in collective bargaining, and supporting individual workers in their reskilling.
Some suggestions from the #ETUC50 fringe event:
☝ Greater democracy in the workplace
☝ Diversified communication w/ potential members
☝ Engagement & utilisation of new members, especially those showing a willingness to engage in 'small tasks'
☝ Alliance-building w/ progressive parties & civil society
☝ Changes in internal governance
