Building Bridges. How social dialogue benefits people and business

On 8 October, 2019, Mondiaal FNV will organise the conference: 'Building Bridges. How social dialogue benefits people and business'.

Stable industrial relations, bargaining processes and dialogue are fundamental to obtaining decent work for all. There are, however, challenges and obstacles that we must face in establishing genuine bargaining and dialogue processes.

The conference will focus on why social dialogue is important for development and how to implement social dialogue in practice at all levels, from companies to countries. In what way can Dutch and multinational companies, international corporate social responsibility (ICSR) covenants, certification organisations, NGOs and other stakeholders promote social dialogue in their operations and supply chains?

Five reasons for you to be there

  • To hear from local people in developing countries about what they think is needed;
  • To learn more about promoting good bargaining practices at companies in your supply chain;
  • You are looking for practical information and support • You are looking for partners and people to work with;
  • You are looking for inspiration from good practices.

Who will be there?
