Priority 1: Policies and tools for the future of Europe


ETUI training: Social Dialogue (SD) differs in member countries depending on their economy, legal system, unionisation and organised labour tradition. The 2008 crisis had a negative impact on social dialogue and collective bargaining at all levels, but the effects varied between countries: some of them were slightly undermined while others suffered severe dismantling and decentralising. Meanwhile, the demand for skilled and competent workers is increasing; it is therefore necessary to promote and strengthen collective bargaining and social dialogue involved in training as the tool that promotes learning and the development of workers in the new economies.
