Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly permeating our working and personal lives. It is a key driver in the digital transformation of our societies and of the economy. AI applications are embedded in our workplaces but remain invisible and difficult to understand for workers, workers representatives and trade union professionals.

The ETUI has carried out research on the rise of AI in the workplace, as well as a series of training courses on the topic, in order to help the European trade union movement to come to terms with how this emerging technology is transforming the world we work and live in. In particular, the use of AI raises questions about how personal and sensitive data are used by companies, employers and third parties. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) can play a role in protecting workers’ privacy and personal or sensitive data.

Aims of the training

− To learn about the general context of AI and algorithmic management
− To acquire knowledge on how to protect workers' rights when they are possibly impacted by AI-driven technologies.
− To learn GDPR basics: what is it? How does it work? What are its main principles? What new rights does it establish?
− To explore how to use GDPR in the context of employment Working languages
