cooperative - European Partnership

Vocational further training requires continuous cooperation from employees and employers!

The European BICO-partnership consists of a consortium of 7 trade unions and 5 employer’s associations from the wood/furniture and metal/machinery building industry in Bulgaria, Italy, Lithuania and Romania.
On national level social partners cooperate with totally 13 companies – most of them small and medium enterprises.

The national actors organize their cooperation on three levels:

  • Information, consultation and exchange of Trade Unions and Employers from different branches and countries (European Partnership)
  • Further training related cooperation of social partners within the industrial sectors (Sector Skills Councils)
  • Close cooperation between workers’ and employers’ representatives from companies for implementing further training activities (Trained Experts)
