EPSCO IS COMING 21 6 18

CALL TO ACTION! All eyes on #EPSCO council on 21st June to reach a general approach on the EU Work-Life Balance Directive

It is now a matter of days, the 28 EU Member States are getting closer to an agreement and the Council of Ministers will position itself at the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs (EPSCO) Council on 21 June. Yes, your government ministers will gather in Brussels on that date to make a key decision on the EU Work-Life Balance directive.

We call on all EU Member States to walk these last steps and make this file advance for the interest of all families in Europe.

We also call on all our partners and friends to contact their Government representatives and the media in their countries, to launch the debate and get citizens involved.

In the last weeks, we have seen the discussion picking up in France and becoming a dinner table topic, following two open letters sent to President Macron by 51 NGOs and the main French Trade Unions. We would like to thank all French NGOs and Trade Unions that made this possible, and MEPs Bullman and Arena who raised the question directly with President Macron in the European Parliament plenary session of April. A number of press article but also radio and TV interviews have been discussing the topic. Among the most recent, an article appeared on Le Monde and a video on TF1.

If you want to raise the topic towards your representatives and media, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us but also raising this topic with your own elected representatives!

We have prepared 8 graphics to be shared on Social media with the hashtags #EPSCOiscoming #IwantWorkLifeBalance
