Twelfth meeting of the DANUBE FAB Social Consultation Forum (SCF/12)
The twelfth DANUBE FAB Social Consultation Forum (SCF) was held in Plovdiv, Bulgaria on 7 June 2017. As a part of the social dialogue within DANUBE FAB the meeting was focused on the recent developments in ATM and the related social aspects. These regular consultations provide a good tool for the mutual understanding between the social partners and their organizations – ROMATSA and BULATSA.
The meeting was co-chaired by Mr. Valentin CIMPUIERU, Director General, ROMATSA and by Mr. Georgi PEEV, Director General, BULATSA. Both Directors General facilitated the active participation of the social partners in the meeting, noting the many recent operational changes to be discussed and the importance of social dialogue between all parties involved.
The staff representative bodies of the two ANSPs were presented with the latest FAB developments, activities since the last Social Consultation Forum and updates on the outcomes of the DANUBE FAB governing bodies meetings. The evolution of DANUBE FAB Free Route Airspace and the way forward regarding DANUBE FAB in the light of the recent EU studies were both key topics of discussion.
Having in mind that the Strategic Program 2017-2021 and the Annual Plan for 2017 were adopted by the Governing Council, discussions took place regarding the status of planned activities, focusing primarily on the high-priority projects such as the DANUBE FAB RP2 Performance Plan, common procurements and technical rationalization and infrastructure.
The next SCF meeting will be held in Romania.
