EUBSSP: NEW ISSUE BRIEF ON SOCIAL DIALOGUE

 

Social dialogue consists of an organized and structured dialogue between employers and employees’ representatives on all matters related to the social impacts of the companies’ activities. It is also a means of involving employees in important decisions for the company, especially when those can impact the workforce.

 

  
 
 

The 300,000 sugar beet growers represented by CIBE produce on average just under 20 million tonnes of white sugar equivalent per year from around 2 million hectares, intended mainly for the 600 million inhabitants of the CIBE member countries.
