Framework Participation Agreements

Trade agreements are an integral part of the EU`s major strategy. It is not just about tariffs, but about jobs and investment, although these two are very important. These new and ambitious trade agreements aim to maintain the EU`s competitiveness in a globalised economy, to extend European standards and standards to other parts of the world. In short, it is geo-economic. Telework is voluntary for both parties, the worker and the employer. The shift to telework has no influence on the status of employment. If the worker refuses to telework, this cannot be a reason to terminate the employment relationship or to change the terms and conditions. The decision to telework is reversible through collective agreements and/or collective agreements where telework is not part of the original job description. Teleworkers have the same rights as comparable workers on the employer`s premises, but it may be necessary to take into account the specifics of telework. Teleworkers have the same active and passive collective rights as employees on the employer`s premises.

provide information and consultations with workers and/or their representatives in accordance with EU law and legislation, collective agreements and national practices. Three types of agreements are on the table: free trade agreements (which can vary in scope, for example. B ongoing negotiations with China are limited to investment, while negotiations with Japan are comprehensive); political agreements (including strategic partnership agreements [SPA] or framework agreements [FA]] that define the level and scope of cooperation in a politically binding document; and a security agreement (APV), which covers the participation of strategic partners in PSDC missions and operations. As a trading power/market, the EU is closer to geopolitics than to geopolitics. It has been better in negotiating trade agreements than in political agreements, and its partners have shown more interest in the former than in the latter. For example, trade agreements being negotiated with the United States (TTIP), India and China are without political consideration. It is precisely to bridge this gap and build bridges between geopolitics and geopolitics that the EU is trying to negotiate trade and political agreements in parallel. The plan is to create leverage between these negotiations and to compensate for the STRENGTHs and weaknesses of the EU. For example, EU negotiators have succeeded in introducing two important clauses in political agreements with South Korea and Canada – on human rights and weapons of mass destruction – whose non-compliance could derail the entire partnership, including the trade agreement. These clauses therefore have a considerable impact and their inclusion is quite important.

It is true that Canada and South Korea pose minor problems with these specific issues, but the inclusion of these clauses is less for them than for other countries.
