It brings together representatives of trade unions (TUNED), led by EPSU, and employers (EUPAE) from this sector with a view to:
- improving the functioning of administrations;
- establishing EU minimum standards on working conditions;
- promoting social dialogue at national and European levels;
- influencing EU policy on public administrations.
EUPAE (European Public Administration Employers) represents 19 EU governments including 12 members (Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Portugal, Romania, Spain, and Slovakia) and 7 observers (Germany, Austria, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Malta, Slovenia). (The UK was a member until the Brexit).
