MOTION FOR A EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT RESOLUTION

on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund, in accordance with point 13 of the Interinstitutional Agreement of 2 December 2013 between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management (application EGF/2014/002 NL/Gelderland-Overijssel construction)

(COM(2014)0455 – C8‑0100/2014 – 2014/2055(BUD))

The European Parliament,

–   having regard to the Commission proposal to the European Parliament and the Council (COM(2014)0455 – C8‑0100/2014),

–   having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (2014-2020) and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1927/2006(1) (EGF Regulation),

–   having regard to Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1311/2013 of 2 December 2013 laying down the multiannual financial framework for the years 2014-2020(2), and in particular Article 12 thereof,

–   having regard to the Interinstitutional Agreement of 2 December 2013 between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management(3) (IIA of 2 December 2013), and in particular point 13 thereof,

–   having regard to the trilogue procedure provided for in point 13 of the IIA of 2 December 2013,

–   having regard to the letter of the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs,

–   having regard to the letter of the Committee on Regional Development,

–   having regard to the report of the Committee on Budgets (A8-0005/2014),

A. whereas the European Union has set up legislative and budgetary instruments to provide additional support to workers who are suffering from the consequences of major structural changes in world trade patterns and to assist their reintegration into the labour market,

B.  whereas the Union’s financial assistance to workers made redundant should be dynamic and made available as quickly and efficiently as possible, in accordance with the Joint Declaration of the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission adopted during the conciliation meeting on 17 July 2008, and having due regard for the IIA of 2 December 2013 in respect of the adoption of decisions to mobilise the EGF,

C.  whereas the number of beneficiaries expected to participate is 475 out of the total 562 eligible workers;

D. whereas the Netherlands submitted application EGF/2014/002 NL/Gelderland-Overijssel construction for a financial contribution from the EGF, following redundancies in 89 enterprises operating in the NACE Rev.2 division 41 ('Construction of buildings')(4) in the contiguous NUTS level 2 regions of Gelderland and Overijssel with 475 workers targeted for EGF co-funded measures, during the reference period from 1 March 2013 to 1 December 2013,

E.  whereas the application fulfils the eligibility criteria set up by the EGF Regulation,

F.   whereas the vast majority (92,6 %) of the workers targeted by the measures are men and 7,4 % are women; whereas 65,3 % of the workers are between 30 and 54 years old; whereas 21,9 % of the workers are between 55 and 64 years old;

1.  Agrees with the Commission that the conditions set out in Article 4(1)(b) of the EGF Regulation are met and that, therefore, the Netherlands is entitled to a financial contribution under that Regulation;

2.  Notes that the Dutch authorities submitted the application for EGF financial contribution on 20 February 2014, supplemented it by additional information until 17 April 2014, and that its assessment was made available by the Commission on 10 July 2014; welcomes the speedy evaluation of five months;

3.  Considers that the redundancies in 89 enterprises operating in the NACE Rev.2 division 41 ('Construction of buildings')(5) in the contiguous NUTS level 2 regions of Gelderland and Overijssel are linked to global financial and economic crisis, referring to the observation that the policy of banks to implement more stringent rules for the provision of mortgages and credits reduced the provision of mortgages and credits considerably, while the austerity measures of the government to reduce national debt and budget deficit reduced public spending and the sharp decline of prices and values on the housing market makes it difficult to sell and buy houses;

4.  Notes that 562 redundancies will further aggravate the unemployment situation in Gelderland and Overijssel bearing in mind that a substantial rise of redundancies in the construction sector is noted and compared with the national figures the number of unemployed in both provinces constitute 39% of the total number of redundancies in 2012;

5.  Welcomes the fact that, in order to provide workers with speedy assistance, the Dutch authorities decided to initiate the implementation of the personalised services to the affected workers on 1 February 2014, well ahead of the final decision on granting the EGF support for the proposed coordinated package;

6.   Notes that application does not contain allowances or incentives in the proposed measures;

7.  Notes that the coordinated package of personalised services to be co-funded includes measures for workers made redundant such as job search assistance and intakes, training and retraining measures, outplacement assistance, mobility pool;

8.   Notes that demolition of asbestos is listed amongst the opportunities for training the participants for occupations outside the construction sector; calls on the Dutch authorities to ensure that workers participating in this specific training must be thoroughly informed of the health and safety risks related to working with asbestos;

9.  Welcomes the fact that the coordinated package of personalised services has been drawn up in consultation with trade unions and employers' organisations, the social partners in the construction sector and educational institutions, and that a policy of equality of women and men as well as the principle of non-discrimination will be applied during the various stages of the implementation of and in access to the EGF; stresses the importance of future cross-border initiatives such as border desks or alignment of rules in order to enhance the exchange of information and to stimulate the cross-border mobility of workers;

10.   Welcomes the idea of creating a mobility pool, which will provide for flexible deployment of workers with the aim to gain work experience and find work through this instrument; expects that the participants will find a non-temporary job;

11. Recalls the importance of improving the employability of all workers by means of adapted training and the recognition of skills and competences gained throughout a worker's professional career; expects the training on offer in the coordinated package to be adapted not only to the needs of the dismissed workers but also to the economy as a whole;

12. Recalls that in line with Article 7 of the EGF Regulation, the design of the coordinated package of personalised services for training and retraining should anticipate future labour market perspectives and required skills and should incorporate the shift towards a resource-efficient and sustainable economy;

13. Notes that the information provided on the coordinated package of personalised services to be funded from the EGF includes information on complementarity with actions funded by the Structural Funds; stresses that the Dutch authorities confirm that the eligible actions do not receive assistance from other Union financial instruments; reiterates its call to the Commission to present a comparative evaluation of those data in its annual reports in order to ensure full respect of the existing regulations and that no duplication of Union-funded services can occur;

14. Notes that the total costs of information and publicity actions is estimated at EUR 27 096; reminds of the importance of raising a better awareness about the EGF contribution and ensuring more visibility of the role of the Union in it;

15. Appreciates the improved procedure put in place by the Commission, following Parliament's request for the accelerated release of grants; notes that the Commission finalised the assessment of the application’s compliance with the conditions for providing a financial contribution within 12 weeks of the receipt of the complete application;

16. Stresses that, in accordance with Article 9 of the EGF Regulation, it shall be ensured that the EGF assistance is limited to what is necessary to provide solidarity and temporary one-off support for targeted beneficiaries, and will not furthermore replace actions which are the responsibility of companies by virtue of national law or collective agreements;

17. Welcomes the adoption of the new EGF Regulation which reflects the agreement reached between the European Parliament and the Council to reintroduce the crisis mobilisation criterion, to increase Union financial contribution to 60% of the total estimated cost of proposed measures, to increase efficiency for the treatment of EGF applications in the Commission and by the European Parliament and the Council by shortening time for assessment and approval, to widen eligible actions and beneficiaries by introducing self-employed persons and young people and to finance incentives for setting up own businesses;

18. Approves the decision annexed to this resolution;

19. Instructs its President to sign the decision with the President of the Council and arrange for its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union;

20. Instructs its President to forward this resolution, including its annex, to the Council and the Commission.

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

I. Background

The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund has been created in order to provide additional assistance to workers suffering from the consequences of major structural changes in world trade patterns.

According to the provisions of Article 12 of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1311/2013 laying down the multiannual financial framework for the years 2014-2020(1) and of Article 15 of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013(2), the Fund may not exceed a maximum annual amount of EUR 150 million (2011 prices). The appropriate amounts are entered into the general budget of the Union as a provision.

As concerns the procedure, according to point 13 of the Interinstitutional Agreement of 2 December 2013 between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management(3), in order to activate the Fund the Commission, in case of a positive assessment of an application, presents to the budgetary authority a proposal for mobilisation of the Fund and, at the same time, a corresponding request for transfer. In the event of disagreement, a trilogue shall be initiated.

II. The Gelderland-Overijssel construction application and the Commission's proposal

On 10 July 2014, the Commission adopted a proposal for a decision on the mobilisation of the EGF in favour of the Netherland's to support the reintegration in the labour market of workers made redundant in 89 enterprises operating in the NACE Rev.2 division 41 ('Construction of buildings')(4) in the contiguous NUTS level 2 regions of Gelderland and Overijssel due to the global financial and economic crisis.

This is the seventh application to be examined under the 2014 budget and refers to the mobilisation of a total amount of EUR1 625 781 from the EGF for the Netherlands. It concerns 475 out of 562 workers made redundant in 89 enterprises operating in the NACE Rev.2 division 41 ('Construction of buildings')(5) in the contiguous NUTS level 2 regions of Gelderland and Overijssel. The application was sent to the Commission on 2 February 2014 and supplemented by additional information up to 17 April 2014. The Commission has concluded, in accordance with all applicable provisions of the EGF Regulation, that the application meets the conditions for a financial contribution from the EGF.

The Dutch authorities state that the Dutch financial sector is an international global sector, depending heavily on the investments, provision of credits and mortgages on the international capital markets. Dutch banks have limited possibilities to attract savings capital from the Dutch market and consequently they cannot finance Dutch mortgages by Dutch capital alone. Dutch banks therefore are dependent on the global capital markets. They further argue that about 98% of the Dutch construction companies are small and medium sized and these companies suffer from lack of credits, which results in many bankruptcies leading to redundancies.

The Dutch authorities argue that over the period 2008-2013 total production of new houses declined by 61 014 units in the Netherlands. For Overijssel production of new houses fell by 2625 and in Gelderland by 7941. The decline of prices and production of new houses was devastating for the employment in the construction sector. As a result - many companies went bankrupt and many construction workers lost their jobs.

The personalised services which are to be provided to workers made redundant consist of the following actions which combine to form a co-ordinated package of personalised services: job search assistance and intakes, training and retraining measures, outplacement assistance, mobility pool.

According to the Commission, the described measures constitute active labour market measures within the eligible actions set out in Article 7 of the EGF Regulation. These actions do not substitute passive social protection measures.

The Dutch authorities have provided all necessary assurances regarding the following:

•   the principles of equality of treatment and non-discrimination will be respected in the access to the proposed actions and their implementation;

•   the requirements laid down in national and EU legislation concerning collective redundancies have been complied with;

•   where the dismissing enterprises have continued their activities after the lay-offs, they have complied with their legal obligations governing the redundancies and have provided for their workers accordingly;

•   the proposed actions will provide support for individual workers and will not be used for restructuring companies or sectors;

•   the proposed actions will not receive financial support from other Union funds or financial instruments and any double financing will be prevented;

•   the proposed actions will be complementary with actions funded by the Structural Funds;

•   the financial contribution from the EGF will comply with the procedural and material Union rules on State aid

Concerning management and control systems, the Netherlands has notified the Commission that the financial contribution will be managed and controlled by the same bodies that manage and control the European Social Fund (ESF).

III. Procedure

In order to mobilise the Fund, the Commission has submitted to the Budget Authority a transfer request for a global amount of EUR EUR 1 625 781 from the EGF reserve (40 02 43) to the EGF budget line (04 04 51).

This is the sixth transfer proposal for the mobilisation of the Fund transmitted to the Budgetary Authority to date during 2014.

The trilogue procedure shall be initiated in the event of disagreement, as provided for in Article 15(4) of the EGF Regulation.

According to an internal agreement, the Employment and Social Affairs Committee should be associated to the process, in order to provide constructive support and contribution to the assessment of the applications from the Fund.

ANNEX: LETTER OF THE COMMITTEE ON EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL AFFAIRS

ZP/ch D(2014)39262

M. Jean Arthuis

Chair of the Committee on Budgets

ASP 09G205

Subject: Opinion on the mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) for the case EGF/2014/002 NL/Gelderland-Overijssel construction from the Netherlands (COM(2014)455 final)

Dear Chair,

The Committee on Employment and Social Affairs (EMPL) as well as its Working Group on the EGF examined the mobilisation of the EGF for the case EGF/2014/002 NL/Gelderland-Overijssel construction and adopted the following opinion.

The EMPL committee and the Working Group on the EGF are in favour of the mobilisation of the Fund concerning this request. In this respect, the EMPL committee presents some remarks without, however, putting into question the transfer of the payments.

The deliberations of the EMPL committee are based on the following considerations:

A) Whereas this application is based on Article 4(1)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 (EGF Regulation) and relates to 562 workers in 89 enterprises in the construction of buildings sector in the regions of Gelderland and Overijssel in the Netherlands, who were made redundant or whose activities ceased within the reference period between 1 March 2013 and 1 December 2013;

B) Whereas the number of beneficiaries expected to participate is 475 out of the total 562 eligible workers;

C) Whereas the Dutch authorities argue that the events giving rise to the redundancies were the negative trends in the construction sector due to the cutting of public spending, fall in the housing prices and the significant reduction in the provision of credits and mortgages by the banks, which lead to the dramatic shrinking of the construction sector in these two regions;

D) Whereas the vast majority (92,6 %) of the workers targeted by the measures are men and 7,4 % are women; whereas 65,3 % of the workers are between 30 and 54 years old; whereas 21,9 % of the workers are between 55 and 64 years old;

E) Whereas the redundancies occurred in the regions of Gelderland and Overijsse, where redundancies in the construction sector constitute 39% of the total redundancies in both provinces;

Therefore, the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs calls on the Committee on Budgets, as the committee responsible, to integrate the following suggestions in its motion for a resolution concerning the Dutch application:

1.  Agrees with the Commission that the intervention criteria set out in Article 4(1)(b) and the conditions set out in Article 13(1) of the Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 are met and that, therefore, the Netherlands is entitled to a financial contribution under this Regulation;

2.  Notes that the Dutch authorities submitted the application for EGF financial contribution on 20 February 2014 and supplemented it by additional information until 17 April 2014;

3.  Notes that out of the 562 eligible beneficiaries, 475 are expected to participate in the proposed actions;

4.   Welcomes the fact, that the Dutch authorities began providing the personalised services to the targeted beneficiaries on 1 February 2014;

5.   Notes that application does not contain allowances or incentives in the proposed measures;

6.   Notes that demolition of asbestos is listed amongst the opportunities for training the participants for occupations outside the construction sector; calls on the Dutch authorities to ensure that workers participating in this specific training must be thoroughly informed of the health and safety risks related to working with asbestos;

7.   Welcomes the idea of creating a mobility pool, which will provide for flexible deployment of workers with the aim to gain work experience and find work through this instrument; expects that the participants will find a non-temporary job;

8.   Recalls that in line with Art 7 of the Regulation, the design of the coordinated package of personalised services for training and retraining should anticipate future labour market perspectives and required skills and should incorporate the shift towards a resource-efficient and sustainable economy;

9.   Notes that the total costs for information and publicity actions is estimated at 27096 Euros; reminds of the importance of raising a better awareness about the EGF contribution and more visibility of the role of the Community in it.

Yours sincerely,

Marita ULVSKOG,

Acting Chair, 1st Vice-Chair

Dear Mr. Arthuis,

Subject:           Mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund
