European Pillar of Social Rights

17.01.17

MMM has joined a group of NGOs to issue a statement calling on MEPs to honour their promises to reconcile work and family life under the "European Pillar of Social Rights"

On 19th January 2017, the European Parliament voted in favour of the “European Pillar of Social Rights” report, which addressed a number of issues of great relevance to families in Europe, including the opportunity to better reconcile work, family, care and personal life.

MMM jointly calls on the European Parliament to reaffirm its position in favour of the reconciliation of work and family life and to reject the amendments that weaken its position by excluding the call for legislative initiatives at EU level.
