A New Model of Co-Responsibility
In recent months, the company committees created to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to ensure business continuity have created a new model of co-responsibility between businesses and employees. This is a form of collaboration that labor unions could also adopt in the future, extending it to broader perimeters of bargaining.#A new level of participation of unions in the life of organizations can be possible by going beyond the logic of demands lacking a direct correlation with the creation of value, but rather aiming at projects able to generate income, productivity, quality of processes, adaptive organizational models, and the development of skills. In addition to tax incentives, the extended use of other tools could favor collaboration between businesses and unions. Among these are investments in employee training, incentives for forms of corporate welfare, the widespread use of technological tools, and the extension of smart working.
