Automotive sector responds to the Commission’s Communication on the EU Skills Agenda

The associations representing the automotive equipment and tyre suppliers, vehicle manufacturers and dealers and workshops (ACEA, CECRA, CLEPA, ETRMA) have come together in May 2020 to list 25 Actions that would help the industry towards a smooth and strong recovery, in the aftermath of the COVID-19 Crisis.

Of these actions, two were specifically focused on the skills needs of the industry and particularly to support up- and re-skilling of the labour force, calling for the establishment of a sectoral Skills Pact for the automotive sector.

The four associations have written a letter to Commissioner Nicolas Schmit, in response to the European Commission’s communication on a “European Skills Agenda for sustainable competitiveness, social fairness and resilience”, published last Thursday. CLEPA, ACEA, CECRA and ETRMA are also part of the DRIVES project, which is seen as the basis for the implementation of a framework for the automotive sector.
