Enlarging the basis of the European social dialogue

More than thirty organizations (European or national trade unions and social movements) - see "Who are we?" - organize to face multiple European summits in order to get the voice of the peoples of Europe heard about their political and social priorities. In particular, a greater involvement of workers (men AND women !), poorly represented in the (national and European) social dialogue, is a priority. In May 2014, the European elections have shown a disturbing rise of the euro-sceptic parties (or even anti-European) : we criticize the EU policies when they restrict workers’ rights, but we must also fight against any national withdrawal !

That is why, between March 2013 and March 2014, the JSC led the European project entitled "Enlarging the basis of the European Social Dialogue : multi-sector actions of training and information for local representatives of workers in the EU, including Central and Eastern Europe”. This project was funded by the European Commission. All the outcomes of these actions are listed in the "Enlarging the basis of the European Social Dialogue” tab.

The European subvention « Enlarging the basis of the European Social Dialogue : multi-sector actions of training and information for local representatives of workers in the EU, including Central and Eastern Europe” enabled to realize 7 actions of training and exchanges between workers’ representatives, affecting all in all more than 300 workers from close to 20 EU’s countries. These actions occurred :

  • 1. In Brussels on the 15th and 16th of March 2013: launching conference with 80 people
  • 2. In Zagreb on the 10th and 11th of May 2014: enlargement conference to the Central and Eastern Europe countries with 60 people
  • 3. Conference about the involvement of women in the social dialogue in Strasburg on the 20th of November 2013 with 117 workers’ representatives from 10 countries. Contact with 5 Euro-Deputies
