Austria - Large-scale survey among workers - June 30, 2018

The Chamber of Labour and trade union confederation ÖGB launched a large-scale dialogue with the membership. The campaign led to the organisation of Dialog meetings across the country, ranging from workplace visits to street pickets. The two organisations summed up the outcome in a first report. A crucial part of the action was the organisation of a survey on the future of labour. The response was impressive, with 300,000 people responding to the questions raised. The survey included questions on issues such as the planned introduction of more possibilities for enlarging the working time (to 12 hours), the need to act against social dumping, the equal treatment of men and women and paid days off for educational purposes.
