EU Sources - ILO on inequality in Europe and on bargaining in the gig economy - April 30, 2018

Two recent ILO publications address the root causes of inequality and the challenges in the gig economy. A first book examines the possible role of social dialogue and the social partners – and more generally industrial relations – in reducing inequalities. It addresses wage inequality as well as inequalities in the distribution of working time and access to jobs, training and career opportunities, social protection and pensions by looking at various labour market policies and industrial relations’ systems. It identifies ways to carry out necessary transformations without generating further inequalities and social exclusion. A second ILO-publication looks at the representation and bargaining needs in the gig economy.
