The objective of this project is to identify self-organized actions to improve the conditions of digital platform workers, analyze their strategies and compare them to trade unions' plans in and across our countries. The Consortium includes partners from countries representing different models of industrial relations, namely the Mediterranean, Centre-West and Eastern model (i.e. Portugal, Spain, Germany and Hungary). It aims to identify the most relevant sectors for platform work; compare trade union strategies vs self-organised actions in four countries; analyse trade union strategies and activities relative to platform workers in four different countries; analyse self-organised actions of platform workers in four different countries; compare trade union strategies vs self-organised crowd workers actions in four countries; and to analyse through dialogic method with partners, experts and stakeholders’ ways to improve trade unions strategies to represent and organise platform workers and to engage self-organised movements. https://crowd-work.eu/
The aim of the INCODING project is to analyse the role of collective bargaining and other forms of employee involvement at workplace level in (co) governing the black box of algorithmic management systems with a view to identify the main challenges they pose to workers and their workplace representatives, and explore its contribution to inclusive algorithmic management. Moreover, the project also aims to learn from best practices, develop collective bargaining strategies and provide recommendations for trade unions, workers’ representatives and employers to negotiate around algorithmic management and Artificial Intelligence systems.
The rising of platform-work creates many difficulties to represent and organize crowd workers and challenges the traditional forms of organized labour and the European social model. The goal of this project is to analyse strategies of alternative unions or movements and trade unions aiming to represent crowd workers in Europe. It will reflect on strategies to organise and represent crowd workers, produce policy options ensuring social protections and labour rights, and elaborate new pathways for exploiting the potential positive effects of crowd economy and platform-based work.
