According to UIC, the negotiations between the unions and the professional organisation of chemistry came to an agreement on three main points which anticipate:

  • 47,000 job opportunities within the period 2015-2017
  • 5,000 young apprentices by 2017
  • Implementation of cross-generational contracts which intend to establish junior-senior working partnerships by promoting the employment of young people and the continued employment of older employees

The chemical industry, "the growing sector where you can find the best hiring prospects"

“The Chemical industry is claimed to have the fastest employment growth, which reflects the good sense of responsibility of the social partners (employer and worker representatives) and the rigour of the Social Dialogue*,” stated by very satisfied Jean Pelin, the general director of UIC.
