TUAC Contributions to the 85th Session of the OECD Steel Committee meeting

18 September 2018

TUAC, in partnership with Industri-ALL Global, submitted a  written contribution on the OECD’s draft guidelines for subsidies and government support measures in the steel sector. A key message is that an excessive reliance on ‘market discipline’ does not allow to adequately adress the problem of global excess steel capacity as the latter has been caused by specific policies in specific region, China in particular.

TUAC also took part in a technical workshop on ‘Facilitating Structural Adjustment’ by highlighting the importance of collective bargaining and job protection, in particular advance notification in order to manage the social consequences of mass restructuring.
