Building a Green Social Dialogue
To completely change the business model of the buildings, transforming itself into driver of a sustainable growth instead of the role of soil devouring, it is not an enlightened choice of the individual company or the individual country but something that the old continent and the entire planet need. For this reason, the green economy is the great challenge of the third millennium, a challenge that the European countries and all social actors must be able to face. To do this, we need to strengthen immediately the social dialogue as the starting point for a strategy that places the reorganization of the production and the transition to a sustainable economy at the core. This, in an extreme recap, is the guiding principle of the project “BROAD – Building Green Social Dialogue”, presented by Fillea-Cgil and recently approved by the European Commission.
The project will involve trade unions from four European countries, research centers, employers’ associations, with the aim to achieve, at the end of the trail, a proposal of Guidelines supporting social dialogue in the transition towards green building, for development of the labor market and growth, in the name of quality and respect for the rights, health and professional skills of workers.
Fillea’-Cgil’s partners: ACV-Belgium, Budowlani-Poland, CCOO-Spain; EFBWW – European Federation of Building and Woodworkers, FILCA CISL, Italy; FENEAL UIL, Italy (trade unions): FDV -Italy, Peco-Institut E.V.-Germany (Research institutes); ANCE (Employers’ association).
