László Andor, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, gave a joint press conference with Mario Monti, author of the report "A new Strategy for the Single Market: At the Service of Europe’s Economy and Society" to present this report.
The Monti II Regulation could: explicitly recognize that there is no inherent conflict between the exercise of the right to take industrial action, including the right or freedom to strike, and the freedoms of establishment and to provide services, or primacy of one over the other; recognise the key role of social partners to take action to protect workers' rights, including through industrial actions; stress the important role of national courts in applying the proportionality test on a case-by-case basis, while reconciling the exercise of fundamental social rights and economic freedoms; and confirm the role and contribution of established alternative dispute resolution mechanisms (such as mediation, conciliation and/or arbitration) at national level, also in case of disputes in trans-national situations.
