Chair of the EESC Employees Group Gabriele Bischoff attended this meeting and presented the opinion of the European Economic and Social Committee on the European Pillar of Social Rights. She recalled: "We see an unequality between economic integration and the integration of social rights. We must create a balance between both. "
Trade union leaders from Slovakia, Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary agreed that in the future of Europe we need greater public investments, more decent jobs and a fortified social dialogue. The social partners must prepare for the transformation of the labour markets in the context of digitization, which means increasing social investments and promoting collective bargaining at all levels.
Visegrad trade unionists discussed the priorities that they want to push during the Social Summit for Fair Jobs and Growth in Gothenburg and adopted a Joint Statement on the proclamation on the European Pillar of Social Rights and a Joint Statement on the revision of Posted Workers Directive.
