EU employer organisations and trade unions present new work programme and in-depth employment analysis

The EU social partners' 5th autonomous work programme, a ‘Partnership for inclusive growth and employment’, sets the course for joint actions for 2015-17. EU social partners also agreed on a joint in-depth employment analysis of the functioning of European labour markets. Eight years after their first joint analysis, they provide key recommendations to address challenges stemming from the crisis and structural issues. Those recommendations include the potential of social dialogue to deliver growth and employment, the need to address Europe's weakness in terms of job creation, the need to foster productivity and the importance of fighting inequalities and poverty.
