Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: CEEMET was created in 1962. MEMBERS AND COVERAGE - CEEMET Members are national peak employer organisations from metal, engineering and technology-based industries in 23 countries. CEEMET members are responsible for representing the social policy and industrial relations' interests of the metal companies in the country concerned, and, where so existing, for the conclusion of the collective agreements in the metal industry. CEEMET has the Australian Industry Group (Ai Group) and SEIFSA from South Africa as associated Members. CEEMET also has contacts with cross-industry employers’ organisations in countries where no employer organisation of the metal, engineering and technology-based industries exist and here in particular in the new EU Member States, such as SP of the Czech Republic, MGYOSZ of Hungary, PKPP and KPP of Poland. The member organisations of CEEMET cover -in principle- the entire range of sectors of the manufacturing industries, including • Basic Metals • Fabricated Metal Goods • Mechanical Engineering • Electrical and Electronical Industry • ICT Industries • Medical, precision and optical instruments, watches etc. • Transportation Means (automobile, ship, aircraft) • Instrument Engineering. Some national member organisations also cover the metal producing industries (iron and steel) or parts of it foundries. Altogether, the CEEMET Members represent about 200,000 member companies employing up to 35 million workers. The objectives as laid down in the statutes of CEEMET are “to promote the exchange of information among its members on all social issues which directly affect interests of these industries. It is also to facilitate concerted views and the formulation of statements on matters of common interest. In achieving these purposes the Association may make such representation to international organisations as is required." CEEMET activities and tasks are based on two pillars: - the exchange and structural documentation of national information on industrial relations, labour law or training matters in the metal and electrical industry - the follow-up of European matters, including lobbying on dossiers of particular interest to our industry. CEEMET follows the wide spectrum of social policy affairs via different Groups and Committees which meet regularly and deal with matters on - "Industrial and Employee Relations", - "European Union" - covering labour law and social protection - "Education, Training and Employability" - "Health and Safety" and - "Socio-Economic Trends". In January 2010 CEEMET and the EMF (European Metalworkers Federation) have set up a sectoral social dialogue committee covering the metal, engineering and technology-based industries - this committee was set up with the approval and recognition of the European Commission. Occasionally, CEEMET activities also address manufacturing specific issues at global level, in particular at ILO and IOE level. CEEMET nearly entirely financed through membership contributions from its national member organisations.
