Sommario

The latest European Semester cycle, covering the period 2016–2017, has highlighted a range of issues regarding the quality of involvement by the social partners in the elaboration of the 2017 National Reform Programme (NRP), as well as in the implementation of the country-specific recommendations (CSRs). This report looks at the different social dialogue practices across Member States and at the role played by the national authorities in enabling the involvement of employer organisations and trade unions in policy reforms. While some improvements have been reported, the challenges and limitations faced – such as insufficient time allocated to consultation and lack of visibility – need to be addressed in order to enhance the effective participation of social partners in the European Semester. An executive summary is also available - see related content.

    Coinvolgimento delle parti sociali nel semestre europeo 2017: prassi di dialogo sociale

    L’ultimo ciclo del semestre europeo, che copre il periodo 2016-2017, ha evidenziato una serie di questioni riguardanti la qualità del coinvolgimento delle parti sociali nell’elaborazione del programma nazionale di riforma (PNR) 2017 e nell’attuazione delle raccomandazioni specifiche per paese (RSP). La presente relazione esamina le diverse prassi di dialogo sociale nei vari Stati membri e il ruolo svolto dalle autorità nazionali nel consentire il coinvolgimento delle organizzazioni dei datori di lavoro e dei sindacati nelle riforme politiche. Sebbene siano stati segnalati alcuni miglioramenti, al fine di rafforzare l’effettiva partecipazione delle parti sociali al semestre europeo, devono essere affrontate le sfide e i limiti incontrati, quali il tempo insufficiente dedicato alla consultazione e la mancanza di visibilità.
