PESSIS III

Promoting employers' social services in social dialogue

 

The project focuses on the creation of a European network representing employers in the social services sector (from the social economy). It ensures that social services employers become recognised social partners at European level and take part in the European Social Dialogue (ESD). Bringing this relevant workforce into ESD will strengthen European Social Dialogue as a whole and improve its coverage of the EU workforce. It is a European project funded by the European Commission’s Programme on Industrial Relations and Social Dialogue. The project lasts 24 months (15 November 2015 – 15 November 2017)
