EFFAT Charter and Roadmap for Youth Employment


EFFAT member organisations recognise the urgency and importance of the current youth employment crisis. 

They therefore resolve to take swift, concrete action at all relevant levels and to support each other in tackling this challenge in all the EFFAT sectors, in accordance with the EFFAT Charter on Youth Employment.

The EFFAT Youth Committee requests that the EFFAT Executive Committee endorses this mandate and that EFFAT member organisations support and implement the present position as well as its related Roadmap in their organisations and countries at all levels.

EFFAT is the European Federation of Food, Agriculture and Tourism Trade Unions. As a European Trade Union Federation representing 120 national trade unions from 35 European countries, EFFAT defends the interests of more than 22 million workers towards the European Institutions, European employers’ associations and transnational companies. EFFAT is a member of the ETUC and the European regional organisation of the IUF.
