TITLE
A new European study to identify and analyse the best practices and strengths of the industrial relations of self-employed workers: representation beyond administration, the possible leadership of SME

 

The project will aim to improve expertise in industrial relations and to promote the exchange of information among parties actively involved in industrial relations. In particular, the project will deal with industrial relations of self-employed workers and their employees considering self-employment and SME synonyms. In particular, the project will aim to realize a study at two different levels. Top-down: to understand the impact of SME in the economy. Bottom-up: to identify the best practices of leadership in the representation of self-employed work. Then, an international conference will be organized in Rome to present the results of the project.

The project has been elaborated according to the experience of all the partners involved. The partnership is heterogeneous involving organisations linked to industrial relations as: Research centres and institutes, Non-profit making organisations and Self-employed trade unions in order to represent all the target groups and stakeholders and coming from 8 countries: Hungary, Bulgaria, Slovak Rep, Poland, Spain, Greece, France and Italy.

The partners have identified two different target groups: the workforce that is employed in SME and specific categories of self-employed workers who are represented by new trade unions as gas station workers, street peddlers, newsstand workers, sales representatives and bartenders.

Finally, the project expected results will be: 1. Identification, collection and analysis of the available best practices of the industrial relations of self-employed in Europe to compare the different situations in the participating countries. 2. Exploitation of the identified best practices to raise the knowledge about the impact of SME in EU economy and the leadership in the representation of self-employed work. 3. Organisation of an international conference in Rome to present the study results and to share experiences and best practices and involve counterparts, stakeholders and other EU countries.
