UNI Europa Graphical have launched an EU-funded project on ” Anticipating changes in the security printing sector “, which will run for 20 months from May 2019 to December 2020.
The overall objective of the project is to assess the situation of employee information and consultation processes in the security printing sector where two types of companies are active in Europe: large multinational private companies and public sector companies (either national printing works or printing department of the national central bank).
The project aims to identify the different actors and existing employee representation structures within multinational companies; to analyse the functioning of information and consultation structures set up at national level, in particular in national security printing companies; to examine how workers are informed and consulted on issues related to product development in a constantly changing sector.
The aim is to strengthen information and consultation mechanisms and create the conditions for better organisation of employee representation across borders and beyond companies, in a sector facing major changes, due in particular to developments in currency circulation, means of payment and technological innovations.
For UNI Europa Graphical, it is crucial to better understand current developments in the publishing sector based mainly on an analysis of the strategies of the sector’s leading players.
These developments and the situation in the security printing sector raise a series of important questions for the sector’s social partners, and this project will attempt to describe them. It is central to get an overview of the situation in multinational private companies and national public companies therefore will the project address the industrial and social impact of recent developments in the European security printing industry.
