European Sectoral Social dialogue was the main subject of the meeting between EBC and David Dion, Head of Unit in DG Employment. The Commission launched a study three years ago to evaluate the real representativeness of the European social partners in construction. The focal point of the meeting was the outcome of this study, which should have an impact on the current situation.
In full respect of the social partners’ autonomy, Mr. Dion reiterated the engagement of the Commission to reach a stable agreement on the employers’ side. This would benefit the European social dialogue in construction. To this end, EBC keeps an open dialogue with the two other sectoral social partners.
