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.

    Función de los interlocutores sociales en el Semestre Europeo

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    El presente informe explora la intervención en el Semestre Europeo de los principales interlocutores sociales, a escala nacional y de la Unión, durante el período 2011-2014. Aunque su función en el Semestre Europeo no está especificada en las disposiciones sobre gobernanza económica europea (el denominado «paquete de seis medidas»), las instituciones y organismos europeos consideran clave para el desarrollo del Semestre la función de los interlocutores sociales y han abogado por una mayor intervención de los mismos. El informe analiza la intervención de los interlocutores sociales en las distintas fases del Semestre Europeo en materia de empleo y política social, y el modo de mejorarla. Examina al mismo tiempo el papel desempeñado por la Comisión Europea y por las administraciones nacionales en la comunicación de las recomendaciones específicas por país. El estudio refleja además las opiniones de los propios interlocutores sociales. Su elaboración se ha basado en investigaciones documentales y en informes nacionales presentados por la red de corresponsales europeos de Eurofound, que abarca los 28 Estados miembros de la UE.
