The objective of this WP2 is to analyse form a comparative perspective the different industrial relations regime about contingent workers in the European scenario, identifying at the same time emerging models and experiences of organization and representation of their interests. Through literature and secondary data analysis, interviews to institutional actors and stakeholders we will analyze the dynamics of regulation and how they affect somehow the characteristics of organization and representation of these workers in the various European countries.

It will also explore how the different contexts of industrial relations influence the new strategies adopted by trade unions, organizations and companies to meet the needs of protection of contingent workers, taking into account the emergence of new actors of the representation (Quasi-unions, umbrella companies and cooperatives structures, platform cooperativism), both nationally and locally.
