Slash Workers
and Industrial ReLations


In recent years, the share of people having a second job has increased, a phenomenon that has markedly transformed their profiles and fragmented their working paths, leading to the growth of the so-called ‘slash workers’. These workers display a slash in their job title since they carry out multiple activities at the same time. The advent of digital platforms has accelerated this trend, making it also more evident. Who are the multiple jobholders in Europe? What are their labour and social needs? Who represents them collectively?

On 11 and 12 May, from 9:30 to 13:00, we will present and discuss the results of the SWIRL project – Slash Workers and Industrial ReLations (VS/2019/0076), funded by DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, promoted by Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Institut Mines Télécom -Télécom ParisTech (France), Universidad de Cádiz, Institut für Sozialwissenschaftliche Forschung eV München (Germany), Institute for the Study of the Societies and Knowledge at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (Bulgaria), Acta (Italian Association of Advanced Tertiary Consultants) and Smart Fondation (Belgium).
