The U.S. – EU Working Group on Employment and Labor-Related Issues was established in 1996 via a Memorandum of Understanding (PDF) signed by Secretary of Labor Robert Reich and his European Commission counterpart. Over the years the Working Group has sponsored meetings, workshops and conferences that draw expertise from governments, trade unions, businesses, academia, and other organizations.
