Enlargement conference to the Central and Eastern Europe countries

Publié le  lundi 20 mai 2013

Zagreb - May, 10-11th 2013

About sixty people was present in Zagreb on the 10th and 11th of May 2013. Collaborating with the “Balkan Forum”, the JSC network reminded the list of the participating members, the new ones and the organizations that would like to join the action. The low presence of the Central and Eastern Europe countries in the European social dialogue is indeed one of the motivations for the project.

A series of speeches concerning the political and social situation, but also about the evolution of the social dialogue in the Balkans, in Greece, in Central Europe, in Germany, permitted to the members (part of a representative panel from several European countries) to be aware of the impact of the crisis and the European policies on the workers and the concerned populations. The exchange between workers’ representatives from more than 10 countries allowed to show that despite the examples’ diversity, the national social dialogue is in trouble all over the countries. Afterwards took place a second speech about the difficulties for the unionists in Central and Eastern Europe to be part of the European social dialogue (speakers from Serbia, Hungary, Poland, Croatia and Romania).

The network then debated about the goals to aim, the next meetings and the strategy to pursue.

The next day, Vladimir Nieddu (SUD-Health) gave a talk about the social dialogue in the health care sectors. And Frédérique Payen (World March of Women) about the specific difficulties for young and women to join the social dialogue, as much in the national as in the European level. The limits of the European social dialogue in the Trade sector were also mentioned during the conference. In the afternoon, the members measured the program, fixed the needs in training for the follow-up, and prepared the next steps of the program.
