ECEG and IndustriAll Europe Trade Union Statement

17/02/15

Statement by the European Chemical Employers Group (ECEG) and industriAll Europe Trade Union on the scope of the Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for the European Chemical Industry.

ECEG together with IndustriAll Europe Trade Union sent a statement on the scope of the Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for the European Chemical Industry to the Commissioner for Employment, Ms Thyssen, and the Vice-President for the Euro and Social Dialogue, Mr Dombrovkis. Since the 2002 Joint Declaration on social dialogue in the chemical industry did not further specify the NACE codes of the economic activities falling under the scope of the to be created SSDC for the “chemical industry”; that it could be understood that the then intended scope corresponded to NACE (Rev. 2) code 20 (Manufacture of chemicals and
chemical products).

Thus, the Social Partners decided to submit a joint request to formally enlarge the scope of the Sector Social Dialogue Committee for the European Chemical Industry to include both “Manufacture of basic pharmaceutical products and pharmaceutical preparations” (NACE 21) and “Manufacture of rubber and plastic products” (NACE 22) based on the representativeness study conducted by Eurofound in 2014.
