We are pleased to invite you to the Final conference of the NEWIN – Negotiating Wage (In)equality project, which investigated social partners views on and responses to the issue of growing wage inequality in five EU-countries: Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovak Republic and the United Kingdom.
Co-financed by the European Commission, the NEWIN project is carried out by ADAPT in collaboration with the Institut für Arbeitsforschung und Transfer (IAT) (Germany), CELSI-Central European Labour Studies Institute (Slovakia), Universiteit of Amsterdam/Amsterdam Instituut voor Arbeids Studies (UvA/AIAS) (The Netherlands), University of Leicester/Centre for Sustainable Work and Employment Futures, College of Social Sciences (United Kingdom).
The general purpose of the NEWIN project is to increase social partners (and policy makers) awareness about the contribution of collective bargaining in tackling inequality in societies. In line with this objective, the project used an interdisciplinary and multiple-method approach, combining both qualitative and quantitative research. It followed a cross-sectoral research design, analysing both the overall developments for the above-mentioned countries and focusing in more detail on four sectors: banking, metal, retail and education.
The event will take place in Brussels, on 29 November 2016 at the International Auditorium – International Trade Unions House, Boulevard du Roi Albert II, No. 5/2 (Room B).
Participation is free. In order to join the event, registration is required by filling out the online registration form.
