BRUSSELS, 21 November 2017 – European social partners within the European Sectoral Social Dialogue signed on November 17 the Joint Declaration on Telework in the European Banking Sector. Agreed by social partners that included ESBG, the joint declaration responds to the need to take into account new realities and trends having an impact on the sector while providing high-level guidance on the teleworking trend. 

​The joint declaration addresses the impact of modern technology on employment in the sector and looks at the current situation, focusing on a number of aspects. According to the joint declaration, “Telework is a way of working using information and communication technologies that at least in part is performed from home or in satellite offices or any other fixed location on a continuous basis”. 

The joint declaration looks at matters such as data protection & cybersecurity, privacy, equipment use and training in terms of career development.

The Social Partners commit to promote the joint declaration in the best feasible ways both at European and national level. 

New trends affecting the sector remain an important topic for the social partners. The European Social Partners will now start working on a joint declaration on digitalisation. 

The European Sectorial Social Dialogue is an instrument of EU social policy and industrial relations to strengthen the dialogue between social partners – ESBG, EBF and EACB as employers’ federations and trade unions represented by UNI Europa Finance.
