Crowd-work – Finding new strategies to organise labour in Europe

The objective of the project is to identify alternative self-organised actions to improve crowd workers’ working conditions, analyse their strategies and compare them with trade unions’ plans in and across countries. The project will contribute to the EU policy agenda by providing sound knowledge on the working conditions of crowd workers as well as traditional and new union strategies to support their rights; improve expertise in the field of industrial relations (including references to existing research on the given topic and adding original empirical research to it) and develop strategies to improve the organization of crowd workers by reflecting on traditional as well as self-organised strategies. The work will focus on answering the research questions by means of case study analyses. The cases will provide actual information about strategies and actions developed by trade unions as well as those autonomously developed by crowd workers.
