1. Welcome and Introduction
Ms Mercedes LANDOLFI (project manager – FILLEA) welcomed the participants (Spanish and Belgian colleagues in videoconference call). Mr Jakub KUS (Budowlani) was unable to get connected and he had to give up the meeting, Ms Bettina PEIFER (PECO Inst.) was unavailable because she was in sick leave. Mr Tom DELEU of ACV BIE was not present due to a previous commitment. Mr Kristof VAN ROY took part in his place. Mercedes presented the agenda and introduced the new secretary of FILLEA Mr Graziano GORLA who is responsible for the green building and sustainability policies. Afterwards, she briefly recapped the main points of the projects and gave an overview of the upcoming tasks in the second part of the project.
2. A detailed description of the activities for the second year
Ms Serena RUGIERO (scientific coordinator – FDV) gave some operational instructions for a correct management of the upcoming tasks with a review of the project aims, work plan, tasks and deliverables. The core activity will be the production of the guidelines (at national and European level) for the implementation of the Social Dialogue in the green building sector. While the first year of the project has focused the current situation of the relationship between green building and SD, this year will be devoted to the national and international dissemination activities, which will promote the exchange of best practices among social partners involved in the social dialogue. Networking approach will be crucial for achieving these goals. Networking will be mainly assured by a successful organisation of the national and the (subsequent) European workshops, as tools for outlining the
guidelines. In this context, Serena reminded the role of the project website (www.broadproject.eu) to establish a kind of forum where the stakeholders and social partners can exchange experiences and best practices. Before going into detail, Serena took the opportunity to inform the participants that, unfortunately, there is still a pending situation, which involves the Polish partner. The national report has not yet been provided. Some attempts to contact Jakub made by the FDV were unsuccessful. Lately, Mercedes was able to get in touch with him and she was told that the Polish report would have been sent shortly. Should this delay be prolonged, it will affect the production of the comparative analysis and, ultimately, the final report, which was originally scheduled for the end of 2016.
Serena also recapped the project timetable with the main deliverables, deadlines and events:
1) the comparative analysis: to be validated by the partners within the end of February; each partner should read it thoroughly, amend it, add or take out parts, which they deem to be removed.
2) the organisation of the national workshop to be held in February-March. 3) the analysis of the outcomes of the national WS and the draft of the national guidelines
4) the participation in the European workshop, which will take place in Rome on 21 June 2017, according to the original schedule. However, Mercedes asked to save other dates around that day. The partners are asked to confirm their availability ASAP.
5) the production of the European guidelines (October-November). 6) the organisation of the final conference and the production of the final deliverables
6) the participation in the final conference in Brussels. The conference will be postponed on a day between 11 and 14 December 2017. CCOO has already expressed their availability for that week.
3. The presentation of the comparative analysis and the final version of the report
Ms Simonetta BORMIOLI (FDV) provided a complete description of the chart that illustrates the comparison (convergencies and divergencies) between the four countries. As said before, the partners must validate it by February. A new document will be sent to the partners shortly with some coloured-coded parts with some instructions attached. In this stage, the partners’ contribution can be effective for the best results in the production of the final version: they are asked to adjust only their parts (amend, move from one level to another, add/remove). They have also been asked to identify or add those issues/elements concerning “R&D, technology and innovation”, to be gathered together under a new heading. As for the social dialogue, the partners were asked to clarify: a) if it is bipartite or tripartite; b) which is the role of civil society organizations; c) at which level (national, regional, local) social dialogue is currently operating. It is
important to notice that some aspects may have been left out for reasons of space and that this document is not intended as a complete mapping. In addition, where question marks appear, this means that something is still unclear or lacking (according to the authors of the document) and thus it should be clarified.
4. The index of the social dialogue guidelines
Mr Daniele DI NUNZIO (FDV) presented the index of the SD guidelines (see the attached document). This document will be useful for the organisation of the national workshop intended as a working group focused on the production of the national guidelines. The guidelines are divided into two parts: tools and area of actions. The partners are also asked to identify some recommendations in order to make more operative the guidelines.
5. Financial aspects
With a view to making an interim financial report, Mr Franco CRUPI (FDV) will be available to support the partners by answering their questions on these issues.
Partners are invited to inform Mercedes ASAP if they intend to submit new changes in their staff involved in the project or other changes, which notification to the Commission is mandatory.
Before the final greetings, Mercedes announced the proposal of a new common project to be submitted under the upcoming call for proposals for the social dialogue. The topic should be the digitalization.
The meeting closed at 12:20.
