European Pillar of Social Rights: Raise your voice!
Public consultation process now open!

The European Commission recently launched a public consultation on the « European Pillar of Social Rights”. We would strongly recommend any interested organization/authority/person to participate in this consultation (which will be open until 31/12/2016) in order to raise his/her/its voice on the direction the EU/Eurozone should take when it comes to defending fundamental and social rights.

The Social Pillar won’t replace basic social rights such as they are expressed in EU primary law, but set a clearer, more detailed reference framework when it comes to the application of the different principles laid down in legislation.  According to the European Commission, the Social Pillar will become a major instrument for a screening of employment and social policies of the Member States and for the development of more coherent policy approaches in this area within the Eurozone.

We strongly encourage everybody to make himself/herself heard through this consultation – the “Social Pillar” will most probably have a strong influence on the future of the European social model…
