The European Commission will prepare proposals for the regulation of labor mobility in the European Union (EU) in the second half of the year. This was announced by the Commissioner for Employment and Social Affairs Marianne Thyssen. The aim is to see the movement of workers in the community as well as its impact on social protection systems, said Commissioner Thyssen.
“What we plan for the second half of the year, is preparing a package of regulation of labor mobility. The first thing to try to get, is its picture – directions of mobility and consequences on social protection systems, and what pressures exercised mobility on other social systems. So far we know only that 3.3% of people are mobile. In USA this percentage is more than 8%”, said Marianne Thyssen.
The 43 committee involved in the renewed social dialogue at European level. According to Marianne Thyssen no financial stability without social justice and social inclusion.
“As you know, during the crisis the social dialogue not led to their full potential and this new committee we want to give him a new dynamic. We need a collective agreement that would give important common solutions for both workers and employers”, she said.
The financial crisis most easily took the EU, where social dialogue was strong, as for example give the Scandinavian countries. This dialogue was interrupted in the community since 2005, and three years later came the financial crisis that shook the strong national economies. The Vice-President of the European Commission for the euro and the social dialogue Valdis Dombrovskis said that for the first time have a commissioner who will be responsible specifically for social dialogue. He recalled that one of the promises made EU President Jean-Claude Juncker, was put on an equal footing economic and social issues and thus strengthen the role of social dialogue.
“The economic and social policy are the two pillars which support the social market economy and the EU”, said Dombrovskis. According to Commissioner Dombrovskis measures to revive the European economy must necessarily be connected with the necessary reforms that will lead to growth and create new jobs. “It is clear that Europe will not achieve higher prosperity without achieving previously high level of competitiveness. From this perspective, structural reforms are important and perhaps one of the key elements to make Europe move from very weak economic recovery now and very weak economic growth and consequently very weak opening new jobs to sustainable and rapid economic growth and respectively the creation of many sustainable jobs”, he said.
Over 3 billion EUR are social objectives set in the EU over the next three years. To have real results, however, should have access to financing, improvement of the justice system and respecting the autonomy of social partners.
