  • European Pillar of Social Rights

  • UĦM Voice of the workers


  • The European Commission presented the European Pillar of Social Rights and will start discussions with the European Parliament and the Council of the EU to work towards broad political support and high-level endorsement of the Pillar.


    The main aim of the Pillar is to achieve a renewed process of upward convergence towards better working and living conditions in Europe, primarily within the euro area. It is based on various key principles and rights, such as gender equality, education, fair wages, and a minimum income. These principles are categorised as equal opportunities and access to the labour market, fair working conditions, and social protection and inclusion.


    The Pillar is further supported through other EU legislation, such as work-life balance for parents and carers, working time, and access to social protection. The Pillar will also establish a social scoreboard, to track trends and performances across the EU on the various areas covered by the Pillar. EU funding programmes, such as the European Social Fund (ESF) will also be used to implement the many key aspects of the Pillar.
