Conference of the Central and Eastern European Trade Unions in EFFAT
Monday 4 November from 2 pm – 6 pm
Tuesday 5 November from 9 am- 6 pm
Westin Hotel in Zagreb, Crystal Room
Our affiliates in CEE and SEE are facing particularly serious challenges since the iron curtain was broken down in 1989. The workers there were hit particularly hard by the economic and social transition period as well as the financial, economic, social and political crises since 2008. Trade unions in this region are still quite often not only missing employers organizations to bargain with but also witnessing tough trade union busting. The aim of the conference is to take stock of the trade union situation and to discuss and find ways in order to strengthen trade union power of our EFFAT affiliates in this very challenging region.
