EUROFER works with a range of stakeholders, including its steel-producing members, trade unions and policy makers on social topics.
Social dialogue is vital to the sustainability and success of the sector, because it is the employees and workers in the sector that make the steel industry what it is. Some 330,000 people work directly for the steel industry. 2.6 million jobs, in total, depend on the sector.
This is why ensuring there is a sufficient skills base is so important - as is continuing an open and transparent dialogue with employees already working within, or around, the sector.
Brussels, 30 June 2020 – IndustriAll European Trade Union and the European Steel Association (EUROFER) have reiterated their deep disappointment at the EU’s decision to not adjust the tariff-free import quota for steel in the light of the collapse in EU steel demand. The steel sector had called for significant, short-term changes to the EU steel safeguards to preserve the industry during this pandemic-induced economic downturn.
European Steel in Figures 2020 is the latest version of EUROFER's statistical handbook.
