Trade union:

DidaNet is a project led by the Austrian trade union confederation ÖGB and bringing together partners from along the Danube region. Its aim is to contribute to fair working conditions in the countries in the Danube region through the cooperation of the social partners. This should allow, on the one hand, to counteract precarious working conditions and, on the other hand, to prevent or counteract the increasing “brain drain” from these countries. A close cooperation of the social partners is crucial. The project is dedicated to the topic of digitalisation in connection with the challenges and opportunities arising from developments in the labour market. The project is divided into two parts. One part focuses on the organisation of events with a view to the digitalisation of the labour market in the Danube region, specifically in Slovenia, the Republic of Moldova, Serbia and the southern regions of the Ukraine: Zakarpatska Oblast, Chernivtsi Oblast and Ivano-Frankivsk. The aim of the second part of the project is to establish a network of workers through platforms in order to organise them and protect them from wage and social dumping in the digital labour market. The project benefits from the financial support of the Austrian Ministry of Labour.
