First anniversary of the framework agreement on digitalisation

The European cross-sectoral social partners concluded in June 2020 a new autonomous framework agreement on digitalisation. Eurocadres has played an active role in the negotiations and raised the interests of professionals and managers.


Eurocadres will in a series of 4 workshops discuss strategies for implementation of the agreement with its member organisations. The first webinar on digital skills will take place 21 June 9.30-13.30 CET &  22 June 9.30-13.30 CET and is addressed to trade union officers and workers’ representatives in companies. Register here.

The participants will, in a multicultural context,

  • learn about the agreement with focus on chapter 1 “Digital skills and employability”; its content and how to use and apply the agreement in the home country,
  • learn about challenges and opportunities of re- and upskilling of professionals and managers,
  • learn about important indicators for negotiating “digital skills” for professionals and managers,
  • learn from good practices in Europe through exchange among participants,
  • learn about monitoring and follow-up mechanisms,
  • and to look on the issue of “digital skills” from a gender perspective.
