The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the need for social dialogue and collective bargaining in order to effectively implement the Recovery Plan for Europe and increase the resilience of Member States in times of economic crisis.
According to the TFEU Treaty, the Commission must consult the European social partners before taking any action in the social policy field. With their "on the ground" experience of the economy and the labour market, they are better able to identify the most appropriate solutions to economic and social challenges. They actively contribute to the definition of European policy in the social and employment field.
A fundamental element of the EU social model, European social dialogue encompasses the discussions, negotiations and joint actions carried out by the 6 European social partners (ETUC, CEC, Eurocadres and Business Europe, CEEP and UEAPME).
