Members of the European Economic and Social Committee,
It’s a great pleasure to be here today celebrating with the newly elected President of the Committee, our comrade and friend Georges Dassis, and the Presidents of the three groups Jacek Krawczyk, Luca Jahier and our colleague and friend Gabriele Bischoff.
I warmly congratulate all of you on behalf of the European Trade Union Confederation and the whole trade union movement in Europe.
Adopted at the ETUC Executive Committee 12 June 2014
The ETUC Executive Committee reiterates how important it is that the interests of workers are represented when considering the issue of standardisation.
It makes reference to the resolution adopted on 5 and 6 June 2013 and to the ETUC’s role in European standardisation within the framework of the new legislative context defined in Regulation No. 1025/2012.
The ETUC was set up in 1973 and now comprises 90 national trade union confederations in 38 countries, plus 10 European trade union federations.
Congress, Executive & Steering Committee
Congress determines the organisation's general policy. It takes place every four years and is attended by delegates from national confederations and European trade union federations. It elects the members of the Executive Committee, the President, the General Secretary, the two Deputy General Secretaries and the four Confederal Secretaries.
• The EU economic governance introduced unwanted interventions on collective bargaining and wage setting mechanisms, particularly through the CSRs.
• In this context a new method of internal and autonomous coordination is needed to prevent and/or counter such interventions, by involving the ETUC affiliates in a multi-level exercise (EU, national, sectoral), fully respecting the autonomy of social partners at the appropriate levels.
