RBT project results
|From December 2006 until February 2008, EASE led the European project entitled “Reinforce the representativeness of the social partners in the sport sector: Row the BoaT project” (RBT project). Mainly financed (80%) by the European Commission, the aim of the project was to develop the social dialogue in the European sport and active leisure sector through the reinforcement of existing social partners, and through EASE and EURO-MEI joint work to support the development of social partners in countries where the social dialogue in the sport and active leisure sector is emerging or less developed. Following the BSDSS project (“Building the Social Dialogue in the Sport Sector”, 2003), the RBT project was the next step forward to the creation of a European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee (ESSDC) for the sport sector.

"Moving forward towards European social dialogue in the sport sector: Content and Contact" (CC-project)
|The new project on European social dialogue - CC-project - aims to bridge the gap between the end of the RBT project and the creation of the European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for the sport sector as a whole, including the sub-sectors not-for-profit, commercial (active leisure) and professional sports, of which the latter respects the specific initiatives of professional football.|
The CC-project activities started on 1st July 2008 and will finish on 30th June 2009.
The main phase of the project will revolve around three meetings:
• two 2-day content-based conferences to gather and review materials on specific issues
• and one informal social dialogue meeting. More...
Meetings with the European Commission (10th July – Brussels)
|The objective of the meetings was to discuss with the EC the possibility of setting up a European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee (ESSDC) for the sport sector, with EURO-MEI and EASE as social partners. The opportunity was also taken to explain the new EC-funded project (CC-project).|
The request for establishment of an ESSDC is viewed by the DG Employment of the European Commission as a letter of intent. It is more about a process than a point of destination. The letter means a strong incentive to the EC: other organisations that will ask similar questions will be directed towards EASE and EURO-MEI. The EC would like to put a social dialogue together fast, to keep the sector together. More...
