  3. 3. ETUC annual EWC Conference“After the Recast –first lessons and future potential”October 16th, 2012Comments by : Claudia Menne, Confederal Secretary ETUCOur next 4 priorities:1° Implement Information & Consultation2° Limit perimeter of confidential data and information3° More training4° Be ready for inter sectoral aspect of TNCs and Groups
  4. 4. Why is Filcams proposing a project such as “MuMMIA”?• In Filcams we know where the mouth of the river is eand we know ifit is a delta or an estuary, but often it is difficult to know whichmountain is the source and which affluents, lakes and lands did theriver encounter in its journey.• We know if a TNC has only one activity on our territory and sectors,but it is harder to understand where the mother company is. Often aGroup has for example its headquarters in USA, production in Asia,distribution and assistance in many countries, also European.• It is key for us to know in which countries but also in which sectorsthat TNC is present, so that we may involve the EuropeanFederations and national trade unions in a Trade Union Alliancewhich is the base for any collective bargaining, including those forEWC training.

  7. 7. Mu.M.M.I.A.: contextConsiderable gap between the amount of multinational companiescovered by the EWC Directive 2009/38/EC...and the amount ofestablished EWCs.The ETUI databank contains around 2.400 multinazional companies10% of which have a multisectoral perimeter20%in case of groups of companiesIn 20 years around 1.200 EWCs were established, more or less 60 peryear.900 active EWCs, many must be renegotiated after new Directive.Around 1.500 TNCs, even though covered by the Directive, dont havean EWC.50 current negotiations underway
  8. 8. Two parallel actions in a constantlychanging environment1°Allow best functioning possible of existing EWCs whichinvolve more than 20.000 members.2°Improve processes for establishing new EWCsforeseeing also the unavoidable training for tradeunionists and future members.In a constantly changing context, where companyperimeters and as a consequence involved trade unionsare often modified.
  9. 9. 2013 scenario partially improvedEWCs > 1.000Of which:IndustriAll <> 550UNI Europa <> 150EFFAT <> 100• GSN <> 60• SE <> 80• Global Agreements <> 220
  10. 10. The crisis: restructuring in 27 countries are destroying morethan what they createFrom the beginning of this crisis to the end of 2012:• 5.400 restructuring processes• 1.800.000 lost jobs• 25 million unemployed at August 2012Since April 2012:• 335 restructuring processes (due to bankruptcy orrepositioning)• in Industry, Transports, Logistics, Finance, Services …– created 47.454 workplaces– destroyed 72.300
  11. 11. Anticipate changeThings dont just happen overnight• We must foresee change and anticipate it
  12. 12. EWCs and the right to Information & Consultation• May favour trade union action to foresee and anticipate change• May be of great support for the establishment of Trade unionalliances

  14. 14. Objective: Understand how to improve trade union actionOften a barrier exists, similar to the language one, between delegatesand trade unionists belonging to different sectors and thus differentFederations.In addition to implementing the European framework of TNCs and theItalian Filcams perimeter, the Mu.M.M.IA. Project had the aim ofexamining within some specific multisectoral companies which werethe main obtacles encountered in the creation and correctfunctioning of an EWC; to propose improvement solutions for theprocesses; propose a method that, if it works in multisectoralcompanies, could be applied as a generic model.
