The Competence Centre Future of Work and UNI Europa published together the new report “Algorithm Management: awareness, risks and responses of the social partners” carried out by Barbora Holubovà, researcher at Central European Labour Studies Institute (CELSI) in Bratislava/ Slovakia.

In the survey launched by UNI Europa and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, nearly 1400 workers across the UNI Europa sectors and from different countries provided feedback on their experience with AM tools. The survey raised questions such as:
The report summarising the survey results and providing recommendations for trade unions on how to address the challenges of AM at work.
The FES Competence Centre 'Future of Work' presents together with UNI Europa the report at a joint-session at LABOR.A 2022 on September 21, 2022 (2-2.45 p.m.).
