Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council, 2947th meeting: updated round table (Employment and Social Policy)
A meeting of the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council (EPSCO) was held on 8 and 9 June 2009 in Luxemburg. On 8 May, the meeting was chaired by Petr Šimerka, Czech Minister for Labour and Social Affairs and President in office of the Council. The main point of the meeting traditionally included preparation of the contribution to the European Council to be held in June regarding solutions to the impacts of the current economic crisis on unemployment. The main messages of the Employment Summit which took place on 7 May 2009 in Prague served as a basis for the discussion of the Ministers. Based on these messages of the Employment Summit, the European Commission prepared two crucial communications: "Communication on a shared commitment for employment" and "Dealing with the impact of an ageing population in the EU". As a part of preparations for the European Council, the Ministers adopted conclusions on the concept of flexicurity in times of crisis and conclusions on social services in the context of active inclusion and new jobs.In addition, the Council discussed the draft decision on the main directions of employment policy in EU Member States in 2009. The priorities of this decision include the following: attempts to maintain employment, to increase the adaptability of workers and businesses and to increase investments in education and training.Within the framework of the report on the third phase of transitional measures, the European Commission published information on the argumentation of Germany and Austria in favour of prolonging restrictions imposed on the free movement of workers on their labour markets until 2011.
