Social affairs - 01.10.2015

“Tackling social challenges is a collective responsibility between the EU and social partners, including local government,” EU Commissioner for employment
We have good policies and good frameworks at the EU level, but we regret their poor implementation. Involving social partners, including local and regional governments, would foster the implementation process and yield concrete improvements in our citizens’ life,” said European Commissioner in charge of employment and social affairs, during a meeting with civil society organisations on 01 October.
One year after entering office, Commissioner Thyssen invited CEMR (as social partner representing local government as employers) and relevant civil society organisations to jointly assess the work accomplished in the area of employment and social affairs: equality, social services provision or the refugee crisis. This was the first of a series of annual meetings that the Commissioner will organise with the civil society, for them to contribute to the European social priorities.
