Resolution on digitalisation: "towards fair digital work". Adopted by the Executive Committee on 8-9 June 2016.

The rapid growth of cyber platforms has created major challenges, both conceptual and regulatory. It might not be a coincidence that their evolution took place in the middle of the great recession which began in 2008 with the Lehman Brothers crash. The ETUC is less worried about innovations like the second-hand economy or car rental. The ETUC’s main concern is digital workforce platforms and their potentially disruptive consequences for the labour market and employment.
