The European Parliament has been one of the key European institutions for trade unions to make our voices heard. However, the predictions of the next election results give cause for concern. One thing is clear - the landscape of the next European Parliament will change and the two traditional parties may no longer have a majority. What does this mean for trade unions and how will we navigate this new landscape?

The Workers' Group is organising an extraordinary meeting in Finland, Helsinki, on the occasion of the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
During it's meeting on 29 November 2019, the Section for Economic and Monetary Union and Economic and Social Cohesion (ECO) of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is organising a public debate "The Benefits of Gender Equality for the European Economy" with the aim to explore how policies aimed at achieving greater gender equality could help reinforce Europe's economic performance and what role the European civil society could play in supporting the development and implementation of these policies.

Social justice is an aspiration common to people of all faiths and value-based philosophies. Helping the poor and needy is a moral – if not also economic and social- imperative that we all share. If there is no solidarity, there is no social cohesion and thus no competitiveness. The European Economic and Social Committee has been calling for an improved social dimension for a long time, and welcomed the Proclamation of a European Pillar of Social Rights as a first step.
