Benefitting All Freelancers 3 - IG Metall:

"(9 mins) Vanessa Barth -- Working hours, collective bargaining, and even the right to organize: all these accomplishments are at risk in the Internet age. Barth’s talk focuses on IG Metall’s activities in support of fair digital labor. The Metal Worker’s Union has started a dialogue with German platforms about fair standards for digital labor. This includes baseline salaries and social security for freelancers and co-determination when it comes to changes of the platforms. Part of IG Metall’s strategy is to build an international network of unions and activists."
