Welcome to our new column "Straight to the point", in which we ask EESC members about important EU topics, opinions or events that have an impact on everyday life in the EU. This time we give the floor to Andrej Zorko, rapporteur of the exploratory opinion "Key components of sustainable quality work during and after recovery", requested by the Slovenian Presidency of the EU and adopted at the EESC's September plenary session.

Andrej Zorko goes straight to the point and explains why the principle of quality of work for quality of life must be upheld at all stages during and after recovery from the COVID-19 crisis. Why does the EESC attach such great importance to this idea and why does it think it should be given special attention in EU policies?
