“Multinational company restructuring: tackling the impact of the crisis through stronger transnational trade union coordination”
In full time of crisis, the project primarily aimed at enhancing transnational coordination among trade unions and employees’ representatives at different levels in multinational companies exposed to restructuring. The idea was to help those actors to conceive consistent common responses to restructuring events. In a longer perspective, it serves at establishing and consolidating a methodology enabling workers’ representatives to take a proactive part in strategic decision making linked to the enduring change.
The following report has been drafted by the Social Development Agency on the basis ofreports and other documents (press releases, joint statements, meeting records) produced within the framework of the project activities. Even given the peculiarity of each company situation the project allowed to tackle, the reports tries to highlight similarities and common issues which emerged during this experience. In particular the project offered the opportunity to assess the state of implementation of fundamental social and labour rights, especially to information and consultation, within multinational companies. It also allowed to observe the strategies enacted and the actions undertaken on a case by case basis.
