This is an important area for social dialogue and an opportunity to shape the ongoing technological change, so as to maximize the benefit for our industry in terms of growth and jobs. The ability to successfully manage this change will be central to whether the MET industry can keep it’s (cost and non-cost) competitiveness and capitalise on the digital transformation for the better.
The joint position -which you can find below- is a starting point for discussion, and sets a preliminary vision of what the issues presenting themselves to the MET sector and to MET social partners may be. Its content will be further developed over time.
The joint position follows the well received Digitalisation & the World of Work report which has been selected finalist in the category "Best Provision of Industry Information & Intelligence" for the European Association Awards 2017.
