Description of the Pledge:

IndustriAll Europe and ECEG recently received from the European Commission the approval for their Roadmap project 2015-2020. This project is aimed at fulfilling part of the Social Dialogue Committee Work Programme an important priority of which has consistently been “youth employment, skills shortage, VET”. Joint actions are therefore being developed to bring/attract as many young people as possible to the chemical and allied industries through the Roadmap project. The “Roadmap 2015-2020” itself will be launched on 13-14 October 2015 and our concrete actions formally adopted then.

The joint action on youth employment, which will initially last for two years, will aim at developing apprenticeship-type training in a number of companies in the chemical and allied industries in the various countries where ECEG has members. This training will aim at improving the technical knowledge with a view to ensure stable employment for young people.
