At UNI Global Union, we believe unions must shape the world of work to ensure that new technology delivers shared prosperity and benefits for all. We are fighting for a digital just transition to good jobs, dignity for workers and a seat at the table to negotiate the effects and use of digital technology.
The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated digitalization in the world of work. Supported by artificial intelligence, new forms of automation, algorithmic management and data collection have transformed workplaces in every economic sector. Remote work has risen to a level never seen before, bringing long wanted flexibility for some but also risks, including increased e-surveillance, longer hours and lack of access to unions.
To assist affiliates in bargaining, UNI has built a database of union-negotiated agreements and clauses on remote work. To find out more about the database and the accompanying report, please click on the link below.
