ETUC Conference and awards for best practice
The ETUC is organising a conference on working time in Brussels on 7 and 8 February 2011. A key part of the conference will be the presentation of awards to the trade unions and employers who have managed to negotiate positive and innovative policies around working time. The ETUC is encouraging all its affiliates to ensure that there is at least one nomination from each member country of the ETUC.
The nominated cases will be assessed by a panel composed of trade union leaders and independent experts coming from the academic world. After the conference a brochure will be produced in French and English, in which the material for the conference, interviews with key-players in the area of working time, and an overview of the cases will be brought together.
The letter explaining the conference and details of the criteria for the award nominations are available below in English and French, along with an application form.
