Since the start of its mandate, the Juncker Commission has placed social priorities at the core of its action and at the heart of the debate on the future of Europe. The concrete initiatives to put the 20 principles of the European Pillar of Social Rights into practice can improve the social situation of millions of Europeans significantly.

Major steps forward have been taken in the EU’s legislative procedure recently in the following fields:

Access to social protection

Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive

European Labour Authority (ELA)

Posting of Workers Directive

Social Security Coordination
