Despite the importance of reflection on how labour is changing, we think that it is nevertheless necessary to keep in mind that workers’ protection is rooted in basic principles such as non-discrimination, health and safety, information and consultation, fair salary, regulation of working time. The preservation of those principles is what guarantees protection to workers, in all sectors and categories.
Therefore, we want to draw attention on how trade unions are facing the safeguarding of labour rights in situations where business’ interests push for a set back. Similarly, we provide highlights on courts’ decisions where the workers’ position is directly opposed to the one of the company. The intention is to offer indications on possible trade unions’ and litigation strategic approaches in support of the workers.
