Social Partner Agreement Eu
As social dialogue is seen as a unique and indispensable element of the European social model, the EU`s official policy has been to extend the role of the European social partners. In its Communication of 26 June 2002, the Commission invited the European social partners to develop their autonomous dialogue and to draw up joint work programmes.  “Digitalization is increasingly shaping our world. Far from an automatic process over which no one has control, it is marked by the interests that drive it. This agreement is an important realization that the interests of maximizing profits alone cannot form the basis of a balanced society,” said Oliver Roethig, UNI Europe Regional Secretary. The European social partners are the employers` and trade union organisations at EU level that participate in the European social dialogue in accordance with Articles 154 and 155 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). In Article 152 TFEU, EU primary law refers for the first time to the concept of `social partners`: Ment van der Zwan, representative of Europêche and spokesperson for the SSDC-F, added: “Today`s decision is an important step towards improving working conditions in the fisheries sector. Having strongly criticised the delays in presenting our agreement to the Council, we would like to acknowledge the commitment and joint efforts of DG Employment and the Dutch and Slovak Presidencies of the EU to reach today`s political agreement. We are aware that this is a first step and we will not stop pushing EU Member States to commit to ratifying C188. The Union recognises and promotes the role of the social partners at its level, taking into account the diversity of national systems. It facilitates dialogue between the social partners while preserving their autonomy.
The ETUC and ETUC stressed the importance of respecting the results of the social dialogue and the agreements concluded between employers and trade unions. These must be transposed into EU law, at the request of the social partners, in accordance with the Treaty. 9 million workers in central government administrations are waiting for the European Commission to propose to the Council the agreement reached in 2015. The EPSU Secretary General supported the demands of public sector employers (CEEP) to invest in public services and public infrastructure. Many public service employees are concerned about the lack of staff and resources and the lack of respect for their work, as the government does not advance appropriate salary increases. He recalled the work of the social partners of local and regional governments in the framework of the social dialogue on digitalisation. We must not only look at the consequences for workers, but also take into account that all citizens can benefit from access and that the gains in prosperity are shared with everyone in society. The role of governments and social partners in keeping older workers in the labour market. Given the lowest level in Poland of EU indicators on the professional activities of people aged 45 and over, the government and the social partners consider it necessary to take measures to promote the professional development of this group. . . .
