The meeting focused on the coordination of trade union strategies with regards to:
- The steady decline of the wage share of the GNP for many decades and the persistent wage gap between certain regions of Europe, in particular between eastern and western Europe;
- The change in working time patterns which calls for new common standards between trade unions in Europe;
- The current challenge faced by social protection and the threat posed to the principle of collective solidarity;
- Finally, the Universal Basic Income and the European Pillar of Social Rights were also focal points of the debate.
Conclusions of the discussions will be further discussed at the Collective Bargaining & Social Policy Committee in October.
