  • Public Hearing - EESC, Room VM3 - Rue Van Maerlant 2., 1040 Brussels, Belgium

    The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is currently preparing an own initiative opinion on "Social Dumping in the Civil Aviation Sector". A hearing will be organized in order to gather relevant views and proposals regarding the new business models adopted by some air transport companies that could lead to social dumping. This may involve a downgrading of working conditions, training, health and safety and wages. The EESC is concerned that, under the cover of intense competition, many airlines resort to more precarious forms of employment and demand new forms of flexibility that benefit mainly the company, leading to unsafe working practices and an increased risk of accidents.

    The Raw Materials Initiative and the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials are key policies that may contribute decisively to maintaining the competitiveness and sustainability of European industry and, consequently, the maintenance or creation of new jobs, especially in regions that have been affected by restructuring due to globalisation.

     

    The CCMI has valuable experience to share with other stakeholders based on opinions that have been adopted in recent years: tackling the challenges in commodity markets and on raw materials, the processing and exploitation of industrial and mining waste deposits from the EU, secondary raw materials, the Raw Materials Initiative, non-energy mining industry in Europe, supply of raw materials.

     

    Going local in events that will be organised in Spain, Slovakia, Romania and Finland will create the right framework for the committee members to better understand the situation on the ground and the concerns of the local organised civil society.
