The introduction of the social dialogue procedure in the Social Policy Protocol and the Treaty on European Union enshrined the role of the social partners in drafting and implementing social and labour policy measures. The European social dialogue model has been a source of in-spiration for national legal systems as a normative reference for social consultation practices. After an initial, intense period of European framework agreements, which were given erga omnes effect by means of legislation, the model entered a crisis phase due to the scarcity of Community legislation in the social field and the emergence of soft law mechanisms, as well as the increasing difficulty of the social partners in concluding regulatory agreements. Recent-ly, the Commission, after activating the consultation phase, blocked the social partners’ request to submit a legislative proposal on the basis of the agreement they had signed, invoking the existence of a discretionary power to assess the appropriateness of a legislative measure. The Court of Justice confirmed this interpretation of the Treaty provisions, opening a breach in the European concertation model which seems completely out of place in the current political phase of rebuilding the social dimension.
Keywords: European social dialogue; Social partners; Representativeness; Concertation; Prin-ciple of democracy, European social pillar; Court of Justice; Commission’s discretionary pow-er to submit a proposal for a directive to the Council; Role of the European Parliament; Limited judicial control.
