Employers accused of abusing EU data privacy rules to hinder trade unions

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is being misused by employers across Europe as trade unions are denied access to information required to recruit and organise workers, a new study has found.

The trends highlighted in ETUC’s report bring to light the recent challenges for trade unions to mobilise their networks as a result of workplaces refusing access to employee data under the pretext that it is forbidden by the GDPR. In this vein, the report brings to attention cases in a range of EU member states including Spain, Luxembourg and Belgium.
