Resumé

This report explores the involvement of peak social partners in the European Semester at EU and national level during the period 2011 to 2014. While their role in the European Semester is not set out in the European economic governance provisions (the so-called ‘Six-Pack’), the European institutional bodies view the two sides of industry as being key to the development of the Semester, and have called for their closer involvement. This report assesses the degree to which the social partners are involved in the different stages of the European Semester procedure on matters regarding employment and social policy issues and how their involvement could be enhanced. At the same time, it examines the role played by the European Commission and the national governments in communicating the country-specific recommendations. The study also looks at the views of the social partners themselves. The report was compiled on the basis of desk research and individual national reports submitted by Eurofound’s network of European correspondents covering all 28 EU Member States. An executive summary is available - see Related content.

    Arbejdsmarkedets parters rolle i det europæiske semester

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Denne rapport omhandler inddragelsen af arbejdsmarkedets vigtigste parter i det europæiske semester på EU-plan og nationalt plan i perioden 2011-2014. Selv om deres rolle i det europæiske semester ikke er defineret i bestemmelserne om EU's økonomiske styring (den såkaldte "six-pack"), betragter EU-institutionerne industriens to parter som afgørende for semesterets forløb og har opfordret til en større inddragelse af dem. I denne rapport vurderes det, i hvilken grad arbejdsmarkedets parter bliver inddraget i de forskellige stadier af det europæiske semesters procedure i sager, der vedrører beskæftigelse og socialpolitiske spørgsmål, og hvordan deres inddragelse kunne forbedres. Samtidig undersøges den rolle, som Europa-Kommissionen og de nationale regeringer spiller, når det gælder kommunikationen af de landespecifikke henstillinger. I undersøgelsen beskæftiger man sig også med arbejdsmarkedets parters egne synspunkter. Rapporten er udarbejdet på baggrund af skrivebordsundersøgelser og individuelle nationale rapporter fra Eurofounds netværk af europæiske korrespondenter, som dækker alle 28 EU-medlemsstater.
