Conference on the response of worker-owned cooperatives to non-standard employmentOnline - 3 December, 2020
Non-standard workers are becoming the new standard. This raises several concerns on ever-deteriorating labour rights and conditions, endangered decent income, access to social rights, and collective representation.
Since the industrial revolution, worker-owned cooperatives respond to people’s needs to guarantee their employment. Many non-standard workers such as own-account workers, freelancers, and platform workers use the cooperative solutions to achieve more quality, job security, often access to social protection, and dignity in their work lives.
In the last months, the COVID-19 pandemic showed that the recognition of non-standard workers, including platform workers, remains a challenge in national and European labour regulations, leaving workers vulnerable and making fitting policies complicated to obtain. The failure to adapt national and European labour legislation to cover non-standard workers worsened the impact of the current crisis, putting workers incomes and livelihoods at risk.
Following the publication of the ALL FOR ONE report, CECOP’s ALL FOR ONE online conference will look at what the “cooperative laboratory” across Europe came up with in order to face the adverse effects of non-standard employment.
Originally planned as a live conference, our online conference will be the cherry on top of a month-long communication campaign, in which we will highlight different aspects of the report through social media channels and distribution lists.
Everyday forefront defenders of fair and quality work conditions for all workers, CECOP invites you to meet these new cooperatives who unite workers, and mutualise risks and solidarity.
Join us on December 3rd online from wherever you are for this one of a kind event!
