The Team Hub! project brings together research institutes and unions from nine EU countries to jointly address features and challenges experienced in the e-commerce supply-chain, mainly concerning storing and delivering activities, by means of an interrelated set of desk research and action research activities.
The project’s main objective is to analyse the implications of the boom of e-commerce, especially following COVID-19, and to equip labour unions with knowledge in order to propose a sustainable reshaping of business models and work organisation in its supply chain, also ahead of the digital revolution and of environmental goals. In particular, after desk research meant to review and analyse existing information and data, the project’s core phases entail case studies on business models, union practices and collective bargaining in the e-commerce supply chain, plus a set of national and EU-level events and workshops where workers, unionists, researchers and stakeholders will discuss: workers’ needs and aspirations, current working conditions and business strategies, possible initiatives by labour unions and policy makers to shape the future of logistics activities most affected by e-commerce developments.
A final phase entails a summary and critical revision of the project’s findings to elaborate a final comparative report including policy recommendations.
