In a year full of challenges, EFBWW and BWI joined forces and cooperated more than ever to defend workers’ rights on numerous levels. In a year when health issues were on top of everyone’s agenda and with economic recovery being a priority, trade union action was vital for workers. The two organisations took action and developed several important campaigns. Some of the activities had already initiated in 2020 and continued during 2021.
“We are very proud that in 2021 the BWI and EFBWW federations significantly moved forward in building stronger relationships through joint policy initiatives and direct actions on the ground. Together, we became stronger, protecting migrant workers in the European Union and in the pan-European region, campaigning for gender equality, building networks within multinational corporations and promoting occupational health and safety as a fundamental workers’ right. The spirit of solidarity is the key element of our joint actions”.
