The July issue of Social Agenda is all about what the European Pillar of Social Rights means in practice.

It is explained that the Pillar, for example, serves as a reference framework for European Commission proposals on work-life balance and working time.

Other articles highlight how the Commission proposes to make free movement of workers within the EU fairer and easier or look at the health and safety package of measures to increase the impact of EU legislation on the work floor.

It also features an article on helping Spain's employment and social services cooperate more effectively in view of the long-term and youth unemployment there.
