Shared roadmap on European social dialogue can foster trust and unity

On the occasion of signing a quadri-partite statement on European social dialogue today BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer said: “Only a few days after the UK decision to leave the EU, the quadri-partite statement we are signing today is an important and positive outcome for the future of the European social dialogue. This can foster trust and unity at a time when Europe is put to a decisive test. This is the first time we agree on such a shared roadmap between Commission, Council and the European social partners. We now need to translate this into real actions, to really strengthen the capacity of social partners to fully play their role, in particular in countries where they need support. We also count on the Commission to take further steps to associate the social partners more closely into its work, in particular when it comes to the definition of its work programmes priorities.” Photos
