ETUC urges Commission to ‘Rethink Refit’
As mentioned in the WP News bulletin, the Commission has launched a fairly comprehensive deregulatory agenda called REFIT that touches on, among other things, the information and consultation directives. In the meantime, the ETUC Executive Committee at its meeting of 3–4 December 2013 adopted a resolution asking the Commission to stop the deregulation of Europe and to ‘Rethink REFIT’. In the eyes of the ETUC, REFIT is not only ‘used as an excuse to get rid of various pieces of legislation, but it is also a serious attempt to destroy the social dialogue and the whole social acquis’.
The resolution is available on the ETUC website.
