On 8 and 9 September 2016, the final conference took place in Brussels of the joint FIM, FIA, UNI-MEI and EFJ project focusing on the future of work and atypical working in the arts, entertainment, and media sector. It was held in the European Parliament and the premises of the European Economic and Social Committee.

Besides representatives from the four organizing federations, the conference welcomed European and national parliamentarians, representatives of the European Commission, the International Labour Office (ILO) and the European Trade Unions Confederation (ETUC), as well as jurists, specialized in social law.

Detailed programme and list of speakers

Following on four thematic workshops, the conference was an opportunity for presentations and opinions of both legal and political nature from numerous speakers. The whole of the work carried out constitutes a solid documentary basis for future initiatives from FIM and its partners with regard to ETUC and ILO on the issue of non-standard forms of employment, a major concern for the trade union movement at a global level.
