In line with the remarks in the budget of the European Union, budget heading 04 03 01 05 is intended to cover grants for information and training measures for workers' organisations in accordance with Article 154 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.
The measures should help workers' organisations to contribute to addressing the overarching EU employment and social policy challenges as laid down in particular in:
„h the Europe 2020 Strategy Europe 2020: A strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth COM(2010)2020 and the European Council Conclusions of 25-26 March 2010 and 17 June 2010;
„h the Commission Communication Strengthening the social dimension of the Economic and Monetary Union (COM(2013)690);
„h the Annual Growth Survey, the Joint Employment Report and the recommendations addressed to the Member States in the context of the European Semester;
„h the Political Guidelines presented by Jean-Claude Juncker in the Agenda for Jobs, Growth, Fairness and Democratic Change and the Commission Work Programmes.
Objectives of this call include measures and initiatives to strengthen the capacity of workers' organisations to address, at EU/transnational level, changes in employment and work and social dialogue related challenges, such as: modernisation of the labour market, quality of work, anticipation, preparation and management of change and restructuring, the greening of the economy, flexicurity, skills, (intra-EU) labour mobility, migration, youth employment, health and safety at work, modernisation of social protection systems, reconciliation of work and family life, gender equality, action in the field of anti-discrimination, active ageing, healthier and longer working lives, active inclusion and decent work.
Actions are also expected to contribute to the priorities and activities of European social dialogue, including those laid down in the work programmes of the EU cross-industry and sectoral social dialogue committees, as well as those that form part of the European Commission's commitment to relaunch and strengthen social dialogue. In that context, particular emphasis is put on strengthening the involvement of social partners in the European Semester and enhancing their contribution to EU policy making.
Measures which contribute to addressing the employment, social and economic dimensions of EU priorities relating to the recovery from the crisis, taking into account the need for social convergence between Member States, and to reaching the objectives and targets of the Europe 2020 Strategy and its flagship initiatives, will also be particularly welcome.
The budget heading can be used to finance actions involving representatives of workers' organisations from the Candidate Countries1.
