(P0)- Cyprus- Ι.Ν.Ε.Κ – Π.Ε.Ο

BJC Logo

The Cyprus Labour Institute (INEK-PEO) is a trade union initiative of the Pancyprian Federation of Labour (PEO). It is, however, an independent and autonomous research, documentation and training centre operating on a professional and scientific basis. The Cyprus Labour Institute has its own legal standing and was founded in 2002 in accordance with Law 57/72 (The Guilds and Institutes Law) of the Republic of Cyprus. It is a non profit-making organisation. The research agenda of the Institute reflects the special relationship of the Institute with the union movement, hence the concern with labour issues in the wider sense and matters of special interest to the union movement. The research activity also addresses issues of broader economic and social concern that exceed the boundaries of standard union action. INEK-PEO is since 2003 the national correspondent for the observatories network (EIRO, ERM, EWCO) of the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions.
