Trade union:

FairCrowdWork is a joint project of IG Metall, the Austrian Chamber of Labor, the Austrian Trade Union Confederation, and the Swedish white collar union Unionen in association with research and development partners Encountering Tech and M&L Communication Marketing. FairCrowdWork collects information about crowd work, app-based work, and other "platform-based work" from the perspective of workers and unions. The site also offers ratings of working conditions on different online labor platforms based on surveys with workers. Within the FairCrowdWork  initiative, about 12 platforms are considered; as to each platform, between 25 and 100 crowd workers were surveyed. The project developed it’s own methodology for the survey, with a restricted-access survey to be completed by platform workers, respondants are paid for the survey.
