EU Sources - Agreement on active ageing - March 31, 2017

The partners in the European Social Dialogue reached an agreement on active ageing that was signed during a meeting of the Tripartite Social Summit. BusinessEurope, UEAPME, CEEP and the ETUC (and liaison committee EUROCADRES/CEC), had agreed in their 2015-2017 Work Programme to negotiate an autonomous framework agreement on active ageing and an inter-generational approach. The concluded framework agreement constitutes the contribution of the social partners to the EU policies (including non-discrimination legislation) and actions which have already been developed to support active ageing and the intergenerational approach. This agreement aims to build upon and enhance the existing measures and approaches that are in place in different contexts across Europe. It outlines tools/measures to be taken into account by social partners and/or HR managers in the context of national demographic and labour market realities, in accordance with national practices and procedures specific to management and labour.
