The employment Future of Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 25 maggio 2010

The EU should open up the labour market for all European citizens to foster the free movement  of labour across the EU. It should promote the integration of workers from other European countries into the labour market of the country in which they live by means of educational  programmes and establish common standards for professional qualification. The EU should disseminate information on employment opportunities in other Member States  and positively motivate unemployed people of all ages to seek employment. The EU should  look at identifying best practice across Europe in order to minimise unemployment during the downturn (e.g. job sharing schemes, reduced working hours, early retirement etc.). It should  conduct employment surveys, provide information about the state of and experiences with the employment market in different countries, facilitate cooperation between job centres. The EU should create the same working conditions and rules for all EU citizens based on a  harmonised Labour Code, harmonising working conditions for employees, right and obligations for employers. This code should include the right to decent salaries and working hours, andit  should include the principle of equal pay for equal work between men and women as well as  workers from other EU Member States. The EU Member States should introduce in a coordinated way a minimum wage in each country, adjusted to national productivity levels and in line with the cost of living.  The EU should impose a European social dialogue involving economic social actors to define agreements between employers and employees at sectoral level e.g. on working hours, pay and conditions etc.  The EU should undertake efforts to attract qualified workers from third countries (brain gain),  helping it secure its competitive position and economic growth. This should be done through a  common labour migration policy, including an expanded BlueCard system which applies  throughout the EU and which has the possibility of prolongation after two years.
