In this time of crisis, it is difficult to keep up with the latest developments on Covid-19 and be able to have a full picture on the impact on the world of work. Many organisations offer datavizualition on the spreading of the disease or the number of casualties.
At the ETUI, we are focussing on the workers’ perspective. This is why we are launching today Covid Social Impact platform to monitor the social and employment consequences of the Covid-19 in European member states. In addition and complementary to the ETUC’s Covid19-Watch Briefing notes, we are collecting all actions from trade unions, social partners, national governments, European Union institutions and international organisations.
Additionally, we have compiled a special Timeline of events to track and trace specifically the EU’s and member states’ very first responses to this new global crisis. This Covid Social Impact Timeline is being produced by Christophe Degryse, senior researcher at the Foresight Unit of the ETUI, and will be regularly updated.
We wish these sets of resources to be of help for the labour movement, researchers, academics and practitioners working on social and employment policies in Europe.
