Basketball in Europe and beyond is a growth market in which revenues have multiplied over the last decade. This is due to increased professionalization with regard to marketing and digital strategies and a change of competition models. Positive effects for elite players include salary increases and improvements of working conditions. Yet, there are negative impacts such as an increased number of games resulting in higher risk of injuries or less time and energy to invest in personal development off the court thus jeopardizing a successful transition out of sport. At the same time, social dialogue on European level is underdeveloped especially in the realm of the federations where the legitimate role of the players in decisionmaking is not recognized. In addition, due to the dispute between the Euroleague and FIBA regarding their respective competition models and the introduction of national team windows during the regular season players have been forced to choose between playing for their national teams or honoring their employment contracts with the clubs. Players or their legitimate representatives were excluded from the decisionmaking process that lead to these developments. Women players find themselves often in semi-professional environments in which the professionalism expected from them is not met by the standards and working conditions provided their employers.

Since the start of the test phase of the European sectoral social dialogue committee (ESSDC) for sport and active leisure in 2012 the social partners UNI Europa Sport and the European Association of Sports Employers (EASE) have been working towards increasing its representativeness in order to meet the criteria required for an official social dialogue committee to be launched.

The project was designed to support the test phase of the European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee in sport and active leisure. Although the management lay in the hands of UNI Europa, the project activities were conducted in close cooperation with our social partner the European Association of Sports Employers (EASE). The make-up of the sector is reflected by its three subsectoral committees: Not-for-Profit Sport, Active Leisure, and Professional Sport. Two major conferences and three subsectoral roundtables were organized within the project's frame. During these gatherings the targeted groups - representatives of athletes, coaches, fitness workers and workers for not-for-profit organizations as well as social partners from the employers' side - exchanged on best practices especially with regard to health and safety as well as employability issues. They jointly generated input for the working group and plenary meetings of the ESSDC which included drafts of joint guidelines on health and safety and content for an Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tool. Delegates from smaller national organizations received helped with their organizational structures and the approach to social dialogue at state level. Specific examples include Skiers Pro and the Water Polo Players' Organization, two nascent pan-European associations of professional athletes, whose work has been invigorated through participating in a roundtable of the professional sport subsector in Stockholm. Overall, the exchange with their colleagues from other member-states and the presentations given by outside experts provided valuable insight and inspiration that the participants took back to their work at national level. They achieved a better understanding of the process and value of the ESSDC in the sport and active leisure sector.

The results show that many face unstable and/or precarious contract situations; high levels of severe injury, weekend work, evening work, discrimination, lack of educational opportunity and are coerced into accepting rules that invade their privacy and violate their data protection rights.
