On 14th of October 2021, the CELSI team in close cooperation with the WageIndicator Foundation and other project partners organized a kick-off meeting with representatives of social partners from V4 about the impact of the pandemic crisis on the industrial relations and renewal of collective agreements. After the CELSI and WageIndicator teams presented the aim of the Barcovid project, the representatives of employers, trade unions and academic community discussed the impact of the pandemic on collective bargaining as well as state measures relating to layoffs, remote work, short-time work and other salient topics. The aim of the meeting was to better understand the country-specific bargaining situation, as well as potentially identify newly negotiated collective agreements in each country.

The kick-off meeting was supported by the EU and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Competence Centre Future of Work.

The project BARCOVID was also presented via a short video available here:
