Participation in the Social Dialogue

USL participated, alongside the Alliance, the trade union confederation of which it is a member, in the social dialogue meetings on the future decision called “New Working Time / Telework”. The College of Commissioners is expected to adopt it soon.
USL represents the Alliance in the regular “health and hygiene at work” meetings which, in this period of pandemic, make it possible to monitor the health situation and adapt the rules of presence in the offices to the pandemic situation

Over the years, Union Syndicale Luxembourg has become a respected and sought-after interlocutor for the administrations of the Institutions as well as for the political decision-makers of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Since 2015, Prime Minister Xavier Bettel meets once a year with a USL delegation composed of representatives of each European Institution present in Luxembourg. Between two meetings, USL keeps in touch with the Secretary General for European Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.

In addition, USL regularly organises political meetings with the parliamentary fractions represented in the Grand Duchy’s Chamber of Deputies. The exchanges we have are often at the origin of “parliamentary questions” which allow the Minister of Foreign and European Affairs to clarify his position and strategy in terms of “seat policy”, the nickname by which the Government’s policy towards the European Institutions, Bodies and Organisations of which Luxembourg is a seat is known.
