IRMO is involved as a partner on the international research project “BARMIG – Bargaining for working conditions and social rights of migrant works in CEE countries” financed by the European Commission, DG for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion. The project is coordinated by the Maria Curie Sklodowska University (UMCS) from Lublin and involves four other organisations – IRMO, Central European Labour Studies Institute (CELSI) Bratislava, Association of Electrical Engineering Industry of the Slovak Republic (ZEPSR) Bratislava and the University of Tartu (UT). The project will be implemented in duration of 22 month. It aims to collect data and provide empirical insight into how trade unions, employers and other stakeholders address issues stemming from employment of non-EU workers. In order to gain sufficiently deep and comparable data, it will analyses 5 sectors: healthcare, metal industry, construction, services and digital economy (platform work) in 6 Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) countries: Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.
