This study provides information designed to encourage sectoral social dialogue in the sugar manufacturing sector. The aim of Eurofound’s series of representativeness studies is to identify the relevant national and supranational social partner organisations in the field of industrial relations in selected sectors. Top-down and bottom-up analyses of the sugar manufacturing sector in the EU28 covered in the study show that the European Federation of Food, Agriculture and Tourism (EFFAT), on the employees’ side, and the European Association of Sugar Manufacturers (CEFS), on the employers’ side, are the most important European-level social partner organisations in the sector and, also, the only social partners in the European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for the sugar sector.

    Representativeness of the European social partner organisations: Sugar manufacturing sector

    Author(s): 
    Eurofound

    This study aims to provide the necessary information to encourage sectoral social dialogue in the sugar manufacturing sector. Eurofound’s series of representativeness studies, carried out at the request of the European Commission, sets out to identify the relevant social partner organisations to be consulted under the provisions of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). The study thus identifies the relevant social partner organisations in the sugar manufacturing sector by a top-down approach (listing the members of the relevant European associations) and a bottom-up approach through Eurofound’s network of European correspondents.
