Following the establishment of the Pact, representatives of all sectors involved signed the Charter at a ceremony in Dublin’s Mansion House in 1999. This Charter set out the shared aims and objectives of Dublin Employment Pact.
The aims of the Dublin Employment Pact are:
To highlight the development needs of Dublin with a particular emphasis on promoting economic growth, employment and social inclusion across the region.
To promote practical solutions at a Dublin-wide level to the problems of urban disadvantage and social exclusion, long-term unemployment, early school leaving and equality in access to the labour market.
To encourage new approaches to quality training and life-long learning so as to develop sustainable quality employment in the public and private sectors and in the social economy.
