The European Commission published a staff working document (Transnational company agreements: realising the potential of social dialogue) which is based on the results of an expert group, in which ETUC and European Trade Union Federations have also participated. The Commission has now launched a consultation and has invited ‘parties to share their views on the challenges and opportunities faced by TCAs and on the specific options put forward’.

The deadline for the consultation is 31 December 2012.
