International PROMO Conference: Enhancing economic democracy for posted workers

International PROMO Conference

The PROMO project, led by the University of Jyväskylä is hosting with its partners a conference on union rights for posted migrant workers, at the University of Padua. The event will be held the 14th and 15th June. It is open to the public, and follows on similar events held in Helsinki and Prague on posting research and labour inspection practices.  

‘Protecting Mobility through Improving Labour Rights Enforcement in Europe’ (PROMO) is a European Commission funded project that aims to enhance administrative cooperation and information sharing between relevant stakeholders engaged with posting of workers. The planned actions aim to 1) bring together researchers and practitioners to make policy-relevant the academic research on worker posting; 2) improve cooperation between worker protection systems; 3) improve union rights and HRM systems for posted workers; and 4) improve quantitative information collection on posted work. Actions involve series of workshops and conferences that bring together researchers, representatives of labour inspectorates, social partners and other relevant actors, and writing a series of policy oriented publications.

Three partners of SIRIUS are involved in PROMO and they will be at the conference: University of Jyväskylä, SOLIDAR and Multikulturni Centrum Praha.
