Dear Madam/Sir,

 

Stand Up for YOUR EU CITIZEN RIGHTS in the UK !

 

Join the EU Workers Block at the Stand up to Racism demonstration on 18th March 20017, at 11.30.

 

WE WANT INDEFINITE RESIDENCY RIGHTS WITH EQUAL ACCES TO THE NHS, WELFARE AND SERVICES!


We came from European countries, like British citizens went to work or retire in other European countries and settled. Some of us are teachers, doctors, nurses, scientists, social workers, musicians, carpenters, plumbers, artists.

We came, believing we are part of this country the same way our countries are welcoming British Citizens. We thought we were all one. We invested, built a home, made friends, strengthened the communities we live in, got involved took part, felt home.

 

Now suddenly our rights are taken away from us.

Dear Madam,
Dear Sir,
 
At its 523rd plenary session, held on 22 and 23 February 2017, the European Economic and Social Committee adopted the following opinion, available in all language versions:
 
The EESC welcomes the New Skills Agenda for Europe. However, it wishes to see more innovative solutions in the fields of education and skills development, as Europe needs a genuine paradigm shift in the goals and functioning of the education sector. The EESC considers that helping individuals to acquire a minimum set of skills is not enough, and that it is crucial to ensure that a Skills Guarantee becomes a guaranteed pathway that enables people to advance and reach the highest achievable level of skills. The Committee calls for more focus on social and gender perspectives, non-formal and informal learning and entrepreneurship as a life skill. It also regrets the lack of new financing to back up the Agenda and encourages more dialogue with organised civil society.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Pavel Trantina

President of the Section for
Employment, Social Affairs and Citizenship

Chère Madame,
Cher Monsieur,
 
Lors de sa 523e session plénière des 22 et 23 février 2017, le Comité économique et social européen a adopté les avis suivants, disponible dans toutes les versions linguistiques:
 
 
Le CESE se félicite de la «Nouvelle stratégie pour les compétences en Europe». Cependant, il souhaite voir des solutions plus novatrices dans les domaines de l'éducation et du développement des compétences, car l'Europe a besoin d'un reel changement de paradigme en ce qui concerne le but et le fonctionnement du secteur de l'éducation. Le CESE considère qu'il n'est pas suffisant d'aider les individus à aquérir des compétences de base, et qu'il est crucial de s'assurer qu'une Garantie de compétences  devienne une voie garantie qui permette aux gens d'avancer et atteindre les niveaux de compétences les plus élevées. Le Comité demande davantage d'attention aux aspects sociaux et de genre, à l'apprentissage non formel et informel et à l'esprit d'entreprise en tant que compétence de vie. Il regrette également l'absence de nouveaux financements pour soutenir l'Agenda et encourage un dialogue plus étroit avec la société civile organisée.
 
Bien à vous,
 
Pavel Trantina

Dear Madam,
Dear Sir,
 
At its 523rd plenary session, held on 22 and 23 February 2017, the European Economic and Social Committee adopted the following opinion, available in all language versions:
 
The EESC advocates the creation of an integrated European fund to combat poverty and social exclusion, based on the experiences of the Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived (FEAD) and the European Social Fund (ESF). The current use of the ESF and the FEAD in the Member States should be monitored more effectively and the process should involve civil society organisations. Member States should make greater use of global grants and regranting, and treat in-kind contributions on an equal footing with financial contributions. A greater share of the resources allocated to operational programmes should be earmarked for projects with smaller budgets. The EESC is ready to set up an ad hoc group composed of EESC members and relevant European level civil society platforms to ensure better coordination of ESF and FEAD interventions and to enable discussion on the basic principles of a future integrated EU fund.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Pavel Trantina

Chère Madame,
Cher Monsieur,
 
Lors de sa 523e session plénière des 22 et 23 février 2017, le Comité économique et social européen a adopté les avis suivants, disponible dans toutes les versions linguistiques:
 
 
Le CESE plaide en faveur de la mise sur pied d'un Fonds européen intégré de lutte contre la pauvreté et l'exclusion sociale en s'appuyant sur l'expérience du Fonds européen d'aide aux plus démunis (FEAD) et du Fonds social européen (FSE). L'utilisation actuelle du FSE et du FEAD dans les États membres devrait être soumise à un suivi plus efficace, et le processus devrait associer les organisations de la société civile. Les États membres devraient recourir davantage à des subventions globales et à des réattributions, et traiter les contributions en nature et les apports financiers sur un pied d'égalité. Les projets ayant des budgets réduits devraient pouvoir bénéficier d'une part plus conséquente des ressources allouées aux programmes opérationnels. Le CESE est prêt à mettre sur pied un groupe ad hoc composé de membres du CESE et de plateformes concernées de la société civile actives à l'échelon européen, qui concourrait à améliorer la coordination des interventions du FSE et du FEAD, et qui contribuerait au débat sur les principes du prochain fonds européen intégré.
