Our messages are reaching national and European policymakers, employers, workers and European society.
The campaign has been taken up with significant impact at European and national levels. This can be followed on the interactive map and on the coverage page of the campaign website. In a nutshell, our campaign:
- has had a particularly strong echo in over 11 countries, including Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Poland, Spain, and UK;
- has been reported about in national media and on other channels in over 14 countries, including Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Romania, Slovakia, Sweden
- has appeared in four big European media outlets, including Equal Times (EN, FR, ESP), Euractiv, Planet Labour, Social Europe.
The campaign has been trickling down to the regional, local and company levels with workers from across Europe engaging actively in the campaign. For example:
- in Belgium, unions are promoting the campaign in workplaces through posters and social media and they are showing the campaign videos at activist meetings
- in Czechia, OS Kovo is distributing the campaign materials through regional offices to all company-level trade union organizations
- in Finland, PRO, Teollisuusliitto and YTN have made their own testimonial videos for the campaign which have been shown through various channels to their members

- in Slovakia, OZ Kovo organized a Public Support Assembly in Košice on 7 November, and has been sending letters to Slovak MEPs and MPs regarding the campaign and the need to promote social dialogue and collective bargaining
- in the UK, Unite has been publishing articles in national newspapers and is actively carrying out the campaign in relation also to the upcoming national elections in December.
