Guide on transnational company agreements launched
The publication, entitled "Transnational Company Agreements: Issues, Approaches and Practices, a guide for employers’ organisations and companies”, has been published and it is meant as a practical tool to help companies and employers gain data and insight on TCAs, and as a result making more informed decisions before signing one
On 24 April, the Employers' Activities Programme, in partnership with the BDA, CEOE, Confindustria, DI, MEDEF, and with the support of BusinessEurope and the IOE, launched a new guide on transnational company agreements (TCAs).
The publication, entitled "Transnational Company Agreements: Issues, Approaches and Practices, a guide for employers’ organisations and companies”, is meant as a practical tool to help companies and employers gain data and insight on TCAs, and as a result making more informed decisions before signing one.
The guide integrates the latest facts and figures on TCAs with best practices and concrete examples of employers that signed TCAs, as well as of those that preferred not to. In particular, the guide shares the reasoning of these companies as a way to help others that are going through a similar process. It also lists a series of issues that companies and employers should look out for and be aware of when engaging in TCAs.
The guide was launched at a meeting co-organised with CEOE, which gathered around 40 participants, including HR and industrial relations Directors of companies, representatives of employers’ organisations, experts on social dialogue and CSR.
The workshop was an opportunity for employers to come together and exchange views on TCAs, their benefits and the challenges that sometimes emerged. Speakers were coming from employers’ organisations, Telefonica, Siemens Gamesa, El Corte Ingles, Adecco, Cavala, among others.
The guide and the workshop are activities part of a project co-funded with the EU.
The next workshop will be co-organised with BDA and will take place on 3 July in Berlin, Germany. If you are interested to take part in the Berlin workshop, please sign up here.
