CECOP & COCETA to hold a public conference on the European Pillar of Social Rights

6 December 2018

On the 10th of December in Madrid, CECOP and our Spanish member COCETA will hold a public conference on the European Pillar of Social Rights.

One year after the Gothenburg Summit when the Pillar was officially proclaimed by the European Council, the European Commission and the European Parliament, the time has come for governments to implement it and for social partners and civil society organisations to make their voices heard.

At the presence of distinguished guests and panelists, our Secretary General Diana Dovgan will take the floor to reiterate once again that the Pillar cannot be relegated in high-sounding documents, but needs to become a reality for European citizens, especially when it comes to their social rights as workers and self-employed.

Juan Antonio Pedreno, President of COCETA and of Social Economy Europe will as well bring the voice of the social economy actors in Europe and call for a full and ambitious implementation of the Pillar across Europe.

Earlier this year, CECOP joined forces with Social Economy Europe, European Movement, Social Platform and the European Trade Union Confederation to create an alliance to defend the Pillar called “Stand Up for the Social Pillar”.
