The ETUC’s objective is full employment in Europe and quality jobs for all. We oppose precarious contracts and undeclared work, bogus self-employment and abusive employment practices. Instead, we fight and negotiate for secure employment contracts, good working conditions and respect for workers’ rights, in both private and public sectors. Decent pay – best achieved through collective bargaining by strong trade unions – remains the best route to ending in-work poverty. The ETUC is particularly active in demanding equal pay for women, and an end to unpaid internships and poverty wages for young people.
