Sectoral Social Dialogue

At sectoral level, the social dialogue underwent an important development in 1998, when the Commission decided on the establishment of sectoral dialogue committees promoting the dialogue between the social partners in the sectors at European level (Commission decision of 20 May 1998 ñ 98/500/EC). The document laid down precise provisions concerning the establishment, representativeness and operation of new sectoral committees, intended as central bodies for consultation, joint initiatives and negotiation.

The sectoral social dialogue committees are established with due regard for the autonomy of the social partners. The social partner organisations must apply jointly to the European Commission in order to take part in a social dialogue at European level. The European organisations representing employers and workers must, when submitting this application, meet a number of criteria:

  • relate to specific sectors or categories, and be organised at European level
  • consist of organisations which are themselves an integral and recognised part of Member State's social partner structures, and have the capacity to
  • negotiate agreements, and which are representative of several Member States
  • have adequate structures to ensure their effective participation in the work of the committees
