DECENTRALIZED THEMATIC SOCIAL DIALOGUE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY (DESOCO)
 

PROJECT PRESENTATION
The European Social partners of the construction industry have established one of the first European Social Dialogue Committees. Over the years, the European social partners have continuously re-affirmed their long-term commitment to develop sustainable industrial relations at EU-level.

Recently (in 2018) the EFBWW and FIEC agreed on a long-term cooperation agreement. In the first jointcommitment, the EFBWW and FIEC agree "to intensify their collaboration with a view to further strengthen industrial relations in the construction industry at EU-level”. In their second commitment the EFBWW and FIEC engage themselves to "strengthen and better coordinate joint research of the European social dimension of the construction industry”. 
 
These commitments were made because the European social partners of the construction industry have observed a significant reduction of European Social Dialogue meeting facilities by the European Commission. The number of meetings were reduced from 8 annual meetings (2 plenary meetings, 2 working groups "employment”, 2 working groups "occupational health and safety” and 2 working groups "Vocational and Educational Training”) to 3 working groups: one "employment”, one "occupational health and safety” and one "youth and Vocational and Educational Training”.
 
The substantial reduction in meeting facilities is in strong contrast to the number of rising challenges for the European construction sector linked to new developments, such as "greening” of the construction industry, digitalisation, labour market developments, etc. The current formal meeting facilities of the EESD committee do not offer the possibilities to discuss these challenges.
 
The European social partners of the construction industry have decided to apply for an EU-project, which is aimed to reinforce the European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee by organising several decentralised thematic discussions which cover the most important upcoming challenges of the European construction labour market.


GOALS OF THE PROJECT 
The proposed project application is fully in line with the topics of specific interest defined in the call for proposals VP/2019/001.
 
The main objective of the project is namely to discuss the social and economic challenges which will determine the future construction labour market.
 
Currently the European secretariats of EFBWW and FIEC are preparing their next multi-annual work programme for the European social dialogue for the construction industry (2020-2023) because the current work program will run until the end of 2019.
