Co-operatives consolidation of the social dialogue process
In October 2009, Mr Rolan Micallef Attard, Secretary General of Koperattivi Malta addressed a conference entitled “Co-operatives consolidation of the social dialogue process” and exposed the national achievements of Koperattivi Malta in its effective representation in the Maltese social dialogue process. This conference was part of a project which was supported by the DG Employment, Social Affairs and Equal opportunities of the European Commission and was launched by Cooperatives Europe to improve the participation of co-operatives in the European Social Dialogue process.
The conference was addressed among others by Dame Pauline Green, the newly elected President of the International Co-operative Alliance, Mr. Etienne Pflimlin, co-President of Cooperatives Europe and Rainer Schluter Director of Cooperatives Europe. Conclusions of the conference are reproduced in a document published by Cooperatives Europe entitled “Co-operative Characteristics within the Social Dialogue in Europe”.
