The RC Conference in Maribor, in comparison to the recent event held in Kino Šiška, Ljubljana:

will feature an additional important aspect. The discussion will unfold in two parts: in the first, we will be hearing from precarious workers, from people with a detailed insight into the circumstances of precarious employments, and those well acquainted with the concrete challenges the precariat is facing. Speakers: Karina Ditz, professional driver, secretary at the Professional Drivers’ Trade Union, Barbara Polajnar, self-employed in the field of culture, Marija Mojca Pungerčar, MA, founder and editor of the Newsletter for self-employed in culture, Kristina Božič, journalist for the daily newspaper Večer, and Goran Lukič from the workers’ counselling office (Delavska svetovalnica).

In the second part, experts from various fields will point out the reasons behind the occurrence of precarious employments, as well as the consequences it implies for both the individual and the society, and present the solutions that have been used so far to deal with the issues associated with precarious work. Speakers: Jože Mencinger, PhD, economist, Igor Šoltes, PhD, Member of the European Parliament, Metoda Dodič Fikfak, PhD, head of the Clinical Institute of Occupational, Traffic, and Sports Medicine, Rudi Klanjšek, PhD, sociologist, and Jakob Počivavšek, President of the Confederation of Trade Unions of Slovenia PERGAM.

The closing part will include a discussion with the aim of providing a common strategy for our future struggle.

RC CONFERENCE: Through the eyes of the precariat

KIBLA PORTAL, Maribor

19 May 2017, at 7 p. m.

The RC Conference will take place on Friday, 19 May 2017, at 6 p. m. at the location of KIBLA PORTAL, Valvasorjeva 40, Maribor, Slovenia. In the opening and closing part, the discussion will include comments, questions and contributions by precarious workers, while the central part will focus on research in that area, as well as employment security and protection.

Apart from precarious workers presenting their own experience and real-life situations, we will be hearing from the following guests: Goran Lukič, dr. Jože Mencinger, dr. Igor Šoltes, dr. Metoda Dodič Fikfak, dr. Rudi Klanjšek, and Jakob Počivavšek.

How many of our questions can you answer?

Na koliko vprašanj o prekarnosti znate odgovoriti?

JOIN US, SOLUTIONS CAN ONLY BE FOUND TOGETHER!

The discussion is urgent: the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia (SURS) states that in 2015 there were as many as 60.000 precarious employments only in the Podravje Region, and as many as 369.000 in the entire Slovenia. It is therefore crucial that we consider the issues related to precarious work together. This refers to those directly thrown in precarious work positions, to students, who will most likely be faced with precarious work opportunities in the short, middle, and long term, and to all those that may be have full-time employments themselves, but are concerned about their colleagues, friends or family members working and living precariously.
