European Social Charter and the right to strike seminar

22 December 2008: The ACV/CSC together with PERC organized the European Seminar in Bucharest from 16 to 19 December 2008 on the “European Social Charter and the Right to Strike”.

Some 25 participants from Center and Eastern European countries and Belgium took part in the seminar. The main issues under debate during the seminar were the legal framework of collective action, the typology of strike and the European jurisprudence on the right to strike. The organizers invited experts from ACV/CSC, EPSU, ETUI, MOSZ and Cartel ALFA. At the same time, the participants in the seminar presented concrete case studies on the right to strike in the CEE region and issued a statement on the importance of this fundamental right for all workers. Proposals have been made also for future activities that could be developed by PERC.
