EU Social Partners Reach Historic Agreement on Supporting Active Ageing

The EU Social Partners, comprising BusinessEurope, UEAPME, CEEP and the ETUC plus the liaison committee EUROCADRES/ CEC, have concluded an historic voluntary agreement on active ageing and an intergenerational approach “to make it  easier for older workers to actively participate and stay in the labour market until the legal retirement age, and at the same time make sure that measures are taken in order to ease inter-generational transitions in the context of high youth unemployment.”

This framework agreement lays a basis for collective bargaining and joint action at local, sector and company level to secure the kinds of changes that could realistically pave the way towards healthier, more secure, productive and longer working lives.
