This article explores three dimensions of how the decision in EPSU affects the future of social Europe. First, it discusses how this decision rejects a right of legislative initiative shared among the social partners and the Commission and turns the participatory mechanism of social dialogue into a mere stakeholder consultation – an anti-model of social dialogue. Second, the article considers how the Court refuses to recognise social dialogue as an alternative means of democracy within the EU tying into the case-law on the European Citizens’ Initiative and constraining democratic deliberation in Europe. Finally, the article explains why the decision in EPSU is a lost chance to clarify that it is the Union’s fundamental interest to protect and promote fundamental rights.
