Measures for Workers Organisations

The Call for Proposals VP/2014/002 - BUDGET HEADING 04 03 01 05 “Information and Training Measures for Workers' Organisations” has been published by the European Commission - Employment, Social Affairs & Inclusion DG.

The purpose of the current “Information and Training Measures for Workers' Organisations” call is to help workers' organisations to contribute to addressing the overarching EU employment and social policy challenges as laid down in particular in:

  • the Europe 2020 Strategy Europe 2020: A strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth COM(2010)2020 and the European Council Conclusions of 25-26 March 2010 and 17 June 2010,
  • the Commission Communications Towards a job-rich recovery (COM(2012)173), Moving Youth into Employment (COM(2012)727) and Towards Social Investment for Growth and Cohesion – including implementing the European Social Fund 2014-2020 (COM(2013)83),
  • the Commission Communication Strengthening the social dimension of the Economic and Monetary Union (COM(2013)690).

In line with the remarks in the budget of the European Union, budget heading 04 03 01 05 is intended to cover grants for information and training measures for workers' organisations in accordance with Article 154 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.


The “Information and Training Measures for Workers' Organisations” call aims to carry out measures and initiatives to strengthen the capacity of workers' organisations to address, at EU/transnational level, changes in employment, work and social dialogue related challenges, such as modernisation of the labour market, quality of work, anticipation, preparation and management of change and restructuring, the greening of the economy, flexicurity, skills, mobility and migration, youth employment, health and safety at work, reconciliation of work and family life, gender equality, action in the field of anti-discrimination, active ageing, healthier and longer working lives, active inclusion and decent work. Measures which contribute to addressing the employment and social dimensions of EU priorities relating to the recovery from the crisis, taking into account increasing inequalities within and between Member States, and to reaching the objectives and targets of the Europe 2020 Strategy and its flagship initiatives, will be particularly welcome. The budget heading can be used to finance actions involving representatives of workers' organisations from the Candidate Countries. It is also intended to promote equal participation of women and men in the decision-making bodies of workers' organisations.
