The head of the Flemish Employer’s organisation says social dialogue doesn’t workSunday, 24 September 2017 01:04
Mr Van Eetvelt says he has become disillusioned with social dialogue. He says the Group of Ten can’t really advance with anything as the sectors are so diverse, and also because of the problems the social partners face.
The Unizo boss says syndicates claiming politicians don’t listen to social dialogue makes no sense. “We had chances but didn’t take them. Those that blame politicians need to examine their own consciences”.
Things in the world of politics are not going how Mr Van Eettvelt would like either. “There is a focus on the short term. Look at the current discussion on pensions, for example. The measures brought in are always small, and they have to save money for the budget above all else. But no-one has come up with a solid plan we can follow for the next 10 to 20 years”.
The head of the Flemish Employer’s organisation has called on the political class to band together. “I have noticed that most parties just prefer to oppose anything. This means that we just go from one argument to another, both within the government and between the government and the opposition”.
