Trade union membership for third country nationals can massively accelerate full inclusion in the hosting society and the labour market. Trade unions are a home to millions of immigrants all over Europe.
UnionMigrantNet was launched in 2015, and comprises a network of trade union contact points across the EU, where new arrivals and their families can obtain information and support on issues like employment, documentation, housing and integration.
The www.unionmigrantnet.eu portal offers services and information in different languages, and real-time advice from experts. The network also provides a forum for cross-border exchange of best practice.
