Beskrivelse

In a knowledge-based society and economy, education trade unions shall represent all aspects, interests and concerns of the employees in the education sector, including their professional needs. The ETUCE project “Education Trade Unions for the Teaching Profession. Strengthening the capacity of education trade unions to represent teachers’ professional needs in social dialogue” seeks to build the capacity of education trade unions to represent teachers’ professional needs and to enhance teachers’ professional issues as a crucial matter of social dialogue in the education sector. This comes at a time when teachers are faced with challenges, both at EU and transnational level, in relation to changes in the labour market, teaching profession, and social dialogue. The project continues the work that ETUCE and its member organisations have achieved in identifying challenges in the teaching profession in times of crisis and in strengthening their involvement in the European Semester.

The research involved:

An on-line survey in three languages (EN, FR, and RU) among ETUCE members in EU/EFTA and candidate countries: to identify national findings related to teachers’ professional needs and their representation, and whether they are a matter of social dialogue; to analyse the role of national and European sectoral social partners in education to negotiate on professional issues of teachers.

Three short case studies conducted in three EU member countries (Italy, Germany, and Poland) to share good practices and to represent the diversity in representing teachers’ professional needs among the EU countries.
