Council of European Professional and Managerial Staff
By representing almost six millions Professionals and Managers in Europe, Eurocadres focuses on an efficient force of the trade union movement, to develop and stimulate all professional levels of work.
Eurocadres is associated with the ETUC, but it is autonomous and addresses Professional and Managerial Staff issues.
Don’t hold Professionals & Managers hostage
EU Trade Secrets directive proposal
Eurocadres has some serious objections to the European Commission’s proposal for a directive on the protection of trade secrets and the Council’s position.
Definitions are unclear and there are clear risks of lock-in effects that will reduce career mobility for professionals and managers. Potentially putting a ban on use of knowledge will not improve the climate for innovation in Europe.
The proposal is unbalanced and do not take employee interests into consideration.
