Who we are, who we represent:

Each sector and region is directly represented on the Executive Committee. UNI Europa’s regional conference takes place every four years.

How we work:
Social dialogue for democracy:
European integration demands a Europe-wide system of industrial relations. Sectoral social dialogue committees have been set up in 10 different UNI Europa sectors. UNI Europa aims to strengthen the social dialogue in sectors where it already exists and to establish sectoral social dialogue where it does not.
There are over 1,000 European Works Councils in operation. Around 230 of them are wholly or jointly coordinated by UNI Europa. UNI Europa also supports and guides workers European Companies (SE).
UNI Europa is helping to build union solidarity among the many workers employed by multinational companies in different countries.
UNI Europa actively monitors and inputs to EU policy-making and legislation.
UNI Europa is active in developing and carrying out European projects, many co-funded by the European Union.
UNI Europa supports the activities and priorities of its national affiliates and helps to promote them at European level. It creates a forum for affiliated unions to exchange their national experiences and to learn from one another.
European Employment Policy, European economic and industrial policy, Digital Agenda for Europe, Services policy, European Social Dialogue - and more generally any EU legislation or policy-making with an impact on our sectors and affiliates.
