In the framework of their fourth Work Programme 2012-2014 , the European social partners declared: "As agreed in the framework of the 2006-2008 and 2009-2010 work programmes, and building on the lessons learned from previous implementation processes and on the findings of the 2012 seminars on this issue, we will jointly ensure better impact and/or implementation of EU social dialogue instruments throughout Europe". In this light, the European Social Dialogue Resource Centre (previously ETUC Resource Centre) has been developed by the ETUC to strengthen EU national trade union organisations' knowledge and skills on social dialogue issues.
The European Social Dialogue Resource Centre consists of a variety of measures that address the specific needs of trade unionists involved in social dialogue negotiations at national and European level.
- Information on EU Social Dialogue issues such as European social partners' Work Programmes or A compilation of EU Social Dialogue texts and outcomes
- Information on the past and ongoing projects/activities of the European Social Partners
- Information on the different opportunities that exists (joint translation fund; Training and mentoring; On demand Seminar etc.)
The content is produced in the framework of the European social dialogue, jointly with the Employers Organisations (BusinessEurope, SGI Europe (formerly CEEP) and the European Association of Craft, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEunited, formerly called UEAPME), and can also be found on the Employer Resource Centre, (ERC)
The European Social Dialogue Resource Centre benefits from EU funding.
