Promoting social and economic dialogue

A consultative assembly of economic and social partners in Europe was created as early as 1957 with the [Treaty of Rome]. Its role was to involve these various interest groups in building the common market. Its members are drawn from representatives of three categories: employers, workers and independent occupations. The [Single European Act] and the [Treaty on European Union] increased the number of areas in which this assembly, the Economic and Social Committee, must be consulted by the other institutions when they wish to introduce legislation in the social sphere.
