    CEEP - European Centre of Employers and Enterprises providing Public Services & SGI (Belgium)

    CEEP is highly skeptical about the opportunity to use, in the present political context, the passerelle clause of the Lisbonne treaty in the social sphere. CEEP is an organisation which, together with its employers and trade-union counterparts, contributed to the very definition and constitution of Europe’s social dimension and its legislative and non-legislative tools, through constant negotiations, debates and cooperation with the EU...

    ECSA, the recognized EU sectoral social partner, representing employers of the maritime transport sector strongly opposes the European Commission’s proposal to introduce more qualified majority voting in social policy.

    Confederation of Danish Employers (Denmark)

    The Confederation of Danish Employers (DA) as other BusinessEuropes members support very strongly what is set out in the position paper of BusinessEurope.

    European Chemical Employers Group (Belgium)

    As the recognized EU sectoral social partner, representing employers of the chemical, pharmaceutical, rubber and plastics industries, the European Chemical Employers Group (ECEG) has produced its own view on the President Juncker’s 2018 letter of intent on making use of the so-called passerelle clauses in certain areas of social policy, shifting decision making from unanimity to qualified majority voting (QMV) or from special legislative...

    ETUC (Belgium)

    Summary: The ETUC has not taken a specific position on (the use of) ‘Passerelle’ clauses. However, it did express itself at several occasions both in general (e.g. in relation to subsequent Treaty revisions) and/or in specific issue-related resolutions on the need to have more efficient decision-making procedures (including voting requirements) in and for the EU. For instance, in its Resolution in 2009 on “The ETUC and the Lisbon Treaty”, the...

    CIP - Confederation of Portuguese Business (Portugal)

    The Confederation of Portuguese Business (CIP) fully disagrees with the initiative presented by the European Commission. In CIP perspective: 1. The arguments that the Commission puts forward to support its initiative are questionable. On one hand, the Commission misinterprets the concerns of the EU citizens referred on the 2018 Spring Eurobarometer. The citizens’ expectations mentioned in the Spring Eurobarometer are at national level and don...

    Confederation of Swedish Enterprise (Sweden)

    The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise strongly opposes the European Commission’s proposal to introduce more qualified majority voting in the area of social policy. • The Commission wrongly asserts that this is a response to citizens’ expectations, and not identified problems, while that which has been expressed are their concerns. Such common interests do not automatically translate into a need for common measures, in particular with...
