The ETUC is a leader in the fight for human rights and equality, it is committed to solidarity, equal respect and dignity for all.
We work closely with NGOs that are active at a European level in opposing unfair treatment, including discrimination against refugees, asylum-seekers, and undeclared and cross-border workers. To this end we are lobbing national governments and the EU to re-open the discussion about the Horizontal Directive and to move towards its long-overdue adoption.
In times when trade unions continue on their path to modernisation, we need unions that mirror the composition of the workforce and fully represent the needs of the groups most deprived of full employment, notably youth, women, migrants and those belonging to vulnerable groups (migrants, refugees, LGBTIQ, disabled etc)
ETUC will continue to convene online meetings of the equality and non-discrimination working group, which among others will serve as a place for dialogue, exchange of the best practices and strategical planning towards the ETUC Congress 2024.
