National Administration

On 17 December 2010, under the EU Belgian Presidency, the European social partners, TUNED and EUPAE, launched the Social Dialogue Committee for Central Government administrations (SDC CGA) with the support of the European Commission. At the time it was the 40th European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee.

It followed on from a long period of informal social dialogue that culminated in a successful two-year test phase in 2008 and 2009 on a formal social dialogue. During that period, topics such as equality and diversity, geographical and occupational mobility, trust in governments, information and consultation rights of employees and civil servants were discussed. TUNED is the EPSU-led trade union delegation that consists of affiliates of EPSU and CESI in all EU member states, except Slovenia, as well as Norway and EU candidate countries. The EPSU/CESI cooperation agreement is available here.

The TUNED spokesperson is the chair of the EPSU NEA committee, Britta Lejon, ST, Sweden. EUPAE is the EU Public Administration Employers platform. As of today it consists of the following 15 national administrations : Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, UK. The secretariat of EUPAE is currently assumed by the French administration (DGAFP), following on from the Belgian administration. The chair of the SDC CGA alternates every year between TUNED and EUPAE, for more information please see rules of procedure of the Committee. The objectives of the Committee are to encourage and develop the social dialogue between the trade unions and employers at European and national levels on issues relevant to the sector, improve the quality of employment and of services provided for the general interest, and respond to the Commission’s consultations on social and employment policy that have an impact on the central government sector. Multiannual workprogrammes are adopted by the Committee (see section adopted documents).
