PROEFP 4

EMPLOYEE INVOLVEMENT IN THE POSTCRISIS EUROPE

BENCHMARKING THE COMMERCE AND SERVICE SECTORS

Europe is sizing a sustainable economic recovery trying to remain faithful to the concept of social market economy enshrined in the EU Treaty. A new social dialogue has to be reshaped to better serve a EU governance that has rapidly changed over the last 8 years. Thanks to several studies and exchanges run in the last 4 years, PROEFP Partners know that social dialogue, collective bargaining and employee participation cannot be seen as separate and independent practices. They are interlinked. Changes in one of the three areas automatically influence the others.

The new ProEFP project wants to explore how employee participation and collective bargaining support each other. In the aftermath of the economic crisis, the project wants to revitalise the nexus between statutory rules and collectively agreed rules to boost employee participation in European companies. It will do it going through the current EU acquis in the field of information, consultation and participation rights of employees and exploring how changes in collective bargaining national systems have impacted a correct implementation of these rights at national and European level. The focus is therefore on the legal tools which set a clear nexus between collective bargaining and information, consultation and participation rights.

SOCIAL DIALOGUE TO ENHANCE ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY IN THE FRAME OF THE 2020 STRATEGY AND NEW SKILLS FOR NEW JOBS AGENDA

The S-DEED project was designed to enhance the adaptation of social dialogue to changes in employment and work and related challenges (modernising the labour market, quality of work, anticipation, management of change, restructuring, and skills).

It emerges that a combination of social dialogue plus EFP can reinforce the sustainable growth of local economies. It has beneficial effects mainly on human capital and investment capital. The S-DEED project has shown that the enhanced capacity of social partners to handle employee financial participation results in innovative solutions. National reports offer a specific path of action for social partners to pursue the objectives of sustainable and inclusive growth.
