The ETUC secretariat is coordinating the participation of the trade union organisations in the EURES network. It is mostly through the Interregional Trade Union Councils (IRTUCs), at regional/interregional levels, who are participating in the EURES Cross Border Partnerships.
The IRTUCs are partners of the EURES Cross Border Partnerships. Around 60 EURES trade union advisers (who have followed the EURES basic training) are giving advice and councils to cross border and frontier workers. This is the specific role of trade unions in the EURES Network.
The activities of the project consist in four European events involving participants from all over the EU (two seminars of EURES trade union advisers, a seminar on youth mobility and a seminar on EURES Cross Border Partnerships) all of which will help strengthening the involvement not only of trade unions but also of employers and public employment services.
