After outlining the need to extend, in consideration of the current socio-economic context, the crosscutting minimal labour law protection patterns envisaged by the Workers’ Statute, the present contribution focuses on the urgency of updating and integrating their content in order to ensure worker protection not only in the framework of the employment relationship but also within the labour market. To this aim, the author considers the possibility of granting workers a “right to professional identityµ. The present contribution furthermore deals with the need to set out criteria for the assessment of union representativeness with a view to coping with the extremely high number of interest representation bodies and collective bargaining agreements, as well as to ensuring the promotional nature of collective action, as envisaged in the Workers’ Statute.
