Call for applications: twinning visits

6 Sep 2022

In the framework of the EU co-funded project entitled Moving the CEE Transport Trade Unions Forward, we are launching a call for applications for twinning visits. This call is directed to trade unions from EU Member States and Candidate Countries in Central and Eastern Europe (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Albania, Montenegro, Serbia, North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina).

The purpose of the study visits is to stimulate exchanges between unions from Central and Eastern Europe with their counterparts from ‘old’ EU Member States and get to know their working methods, involvement within the national social dialogue and interaction with other parts of the civil society. Furthermore, the visits should enhance their knowledge of workers’ rights and collective representation and collective bargaining and negotiating skills.

What is included?
The budget can finance the travel costs, accommodation and subsistence for up to 5 participants for a two-day visit to a given country between 1 October 2022 and 16 December 2022.

How to apply?
Please fill in the application form and send it back to Josef Maurer, Head of Operations, Central and Eastern Europe and Equalities, by Friday, 16 September 2022. Your application will be reviewed against the criteria of the call, and you will be informed about the result. Once you receive a confirmation, you can start planning your visit.

Not a CEE union? How can you help?
Are you not coming from one of our affiliates in Central and Eastern Europe? You can always volunteer to receive one of the twinning delegations. Simply reply to this message and inform us if you are ready to welcome our colleagues.
