08/10/2018 | Resolution
On 25 September 2018 the Labour Committee adopted a favourable resolution with the following qualifications:
1) a debate should be started on European social and wage conditions and on the harmonization of social protection systems. Checks should be carried out in order to prevent enterprises from extablishing their registered offices or production plants in member States with the cheapest tax system or labour cost;
2) objective criteria to identify the location of the seat of the Agency should be laid down. The wish is expressed that the chosen venue might be in Italy;
3) the Agency should be able to rely upon effective and independent staff, also above the limit of one officer per member State, reflecting the population width;
4) the Agency should co-operate with other EU Agencies, within the boundaries of their competence;
5) in the event of disputes between Member States , consequences of not complying with the Agency recommendations in a mediation procedure should be clarified;
6) it should also be made clear whether documents of the Authority can be appealed against in front of the EU Court of Justice;
7) data held both at the European level (the Business Registers Interconnection System and the future European Social Security Number database) and at the national level should be available for consultation;
8) the large-scale restructuring events or major projects impacting employment which allow the Agency's intervention should involve not only border regions but all regions involved in such events (article 14).
