Joint Open Letter to the EU Employment Council:  Congratulations, nearly there!

11.03.19

MMM has joined other eight European civil society networks and organisations to issue a statement ahead of the EU Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council on 15 March 2019 concerning the upcoming adoption of the Directive on Work-Life Balance.

As it establishes minimum standards on work life- balance it will bring positive changes to the lives of many Europeans.

We believe it is an important stepping stone in the consolidation of existing rights and the establishment of new ones, and it must now be swiftly approved and followed up with enforcement and monitoring.
