EPSU-HOSPEEM Guidelines & Good Practice Examples "Ageing Workforce Healthcare Sector"



The document was elaborated based on a mandate agreed by EPSU and HOSPEEM in December 2011 in the framework of negotiations of a "Drafting Group" between January 2012 and September 2012.

A provisional version was agreed upon by the Plenary Meeting 2012 of the Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for the Hospital Sector on 10 December 2012. Further revisions were agreed between HOSPEEM and EPSU in the two meetings of 20 March 2013 and 25 June 2013 of the Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for the Hospital Sector.

The document was endorsed by the HOSPEEM Executive Committee and by the EPSU Standing Committee "Health and Social Services" on 15 October 2013 (15 votes in favour; 5 abstentions; no vote against).

HOSPEEM and EPSU will undertake a review of progress made by their members and consider whether there are any changes that need to be made in order to update the document two years after adoption. By the end of the fourth year after adoption of this document, a report will be issued on the overall implementation of these Guidelines. In this period, social partners in the hospital sector will report at least once a year back to the Social Dialogue Committee about the progress made.

The document is available in EN, FR and DE.







EPSU in May 2012 adopted a position paper to underpin EPSU's demands and positions in the context of the social partners' negotiations.
