Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee in Central Government Administrations

On 17 December 2010, the European social partners, TUNED and EUPAE, launched the Social Dialogue Committee for Central Government administrations with the support of the European Commission. It is the 40th European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee. See our Photo gallery.

It follows on from an informal social dialogue that culminated in a successful two-year test phase in 2008 and 2009 on a formal social dialogue. During that period, topics such as equality and diversity, geographical and occupational mobility, trust in governments, information and consultation rights of employees and civil servants were discussed.

TUNED is the EPSU-led trade union delegation that consists of affiliates of EPSU and CESI in the EU-27 member states (plus Norway and EU candidate countries). The EPSU/CESI cooperation agreement is available here

EUPAE is the EU Public Administration Employers platform which was set up under the Belgian EU presidency. It is separate from EUPAN, the EU Public Administration Network. As of today 9 national administrations (Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Romania, Spain, UK) have joined the employers’ platform.

The rules of procedure of the Committee are available here

The objectives of the Committee are to encourage and develop the social dialogue between the trade unions and employers at European and national levels on issues relevant to the sector, improve the quality of employment and of services provided for the general interest, and respond to the Commission’s consultations on social and employment policy that has consequences for the central government sector. A workprogramme for 2010 and 2011 will be discussed and approved at the first meeting of the Committee on 14 February 2010.
