# Our convictions

Quality social dialogue is vital for accomplishing objectives and orchestrating major transformations. Respect for labour partners and their capacity to find agreements are key factors that condition the quality of dialogue.

Labour unions have a key role to play in facilitating and fostering social dialogue, notably within European works councils and sector-based commissions to promote social dialogue set up by the European Commission.

Organise cooperative campaigns that include labour organisations, to promote a common agenda on industrial issues and to protect critical investments.

Conduct missions to foster change within the context of sensitive restructurings, buyouts, and mergers and acquisitions.

Conduct economic research research that amplifies the voice of employment, such as the study that appeared in March 2010: “Building a digital economy: the importance of saving jobs in the EU’s creative industries.”
