(COM(2017)0618 – C8‑0364/2017 – 2017/2231(BUD))

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the Commission proposal to the European Parliament and the Council (COM(2017)0618 – C8‑0364/2017),

–  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 (A8-0366/2017),

A.  whereas the 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 or of the global financial and economic crisis, 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;

C.  whereas Finland submitted application EGF/2017/005 FI/Retail for a financial contribution from the EGF under the intervention criteria set out in point (b) of Article 4(1) of the EGF Regulation following 1 660 redundancies in three enterprises operating in the economic sector classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 47 (Retail trade, except motor vehicles and motorcycles) in the NUTS level 2 regions of Länsi Suomi, Helsinki-Uusimaa, Etelä-Suomi and Pohjois- ja Itä-Suomi in Finland; whereas 1 500 redundant workers are expected to participate in the measures;

D.  whereas the financial control of the actions supported by the EGF is the responsibility of the Member State concerned, as laid down in Article 21(1) of the EGF Regulation;

1.  Agrees with the Commission that the conditions set out in point (b) of Article 4(1) of the EGF Regulation are met and that Finland is entitled to a financial contribution of EUR 2 499 360 under that Regulation, which represents 60 % of the total cost of EUR 4 165 600;

2.  Notes that the Commission respected the deadline of 12 weeks from the receipt of the completed application from the Finnish authorities until the finalisation of its assessment on the compliance with the conditions for providing a financial contribution on 23 October 2017 and notified its assessment to Parliament on the same day;

3.  Notes that Finland argues that the redundancies are linked to major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation, more particularly to the exponential growth of international online trading; notes, in particular, that the increase in online sales of retail products in Finland, combined with the popularity of non-EU web-shops with Finnish consumers, has led to a steady decrease in the sales of conventional Finnish department stores since 2014;

4.  Notes that all four NUTS-2 regions of Finland are affected by the dismissals that occurred at two major Finnish department store chains; recognises that such stores have faced declining cash-flow and profitability arising from the growth of e-commerce, changing shopping habits and weak consumer confidence;

5.  Recalls that the dismissals occurred at two major Finnish department store chains and one subsidiary, which since 2015 have all experienced serious issues of declining profitability and deteriorating cash-flow due to the rise of e-commerce, changing shopping habits and weak consumer confidence; regrets that in early 2017 two of the companies concerned had to close down completely;

6.  Is aware that, at the same time, a major change in the nature of retail jobs has occurred, with part-time jobs requiring new skills, such as IT, forecasting, data analysis, communication, customer knowledge and logistical skills, on the rise; regrets that 43 % of Finnish retail staff, who are over 45 years old, lack such skills; considers that impediments to re-employment for those over 50 years old represent an important issue and awaits with interest an evaluation of the career coaching pilots that have been included for this group of redundant workers;

7.  Underlines that a large number of the redundant workers are over the age of 55 and over 76 % are women; in view of this, acknowledges the importance of active labour market measures co-funded by the EGF for improving the chances of reintegration in the labour market of these vulnerable groups; welcomes that particular importance has been paid to tailoring the proposed measures to the specific needs of the target groups;

8.  Notes that Finland is planning seven types of measures for the redundant workers covered by this application: (i) coaching measures and other preparatory measures, (ii) employment and other business measures, (iii) training courses, (iv) start-up grants, (v) career coaching pilots, (vi) pay subsidies, (vii) allowances for travel and accommodation; welcomes the planned career coaching pilots looking at physical, mental, or other issues that may act as an impediment to re-employment for beneficiaries over 50 years old; notes that sufficient funds are allocated to control and reporting;

9.  Notes that the income supports measures will constitute 22,05 % of the overall package of personalised measures, well below the maximum 35 % set out in the EGF Regulation and that those actions are conditional on the active participation of the targeted beneficiaries in job-search or training activities;

10.  Acknowledges that the coordinated package of personalised services has been drawn up in consultation with representatives of the Centres for Economic Development, Transport and Environment of Uusimaa, Pirkanmaa, Pohjois-Pohjanmaa, Varsinais-Suomi and the Employment and Economic Development Office of Uusimaa, as well as company and trade union representatives;

11.  Notes that the Finnish authorities have provided assurances that the proposed actions will not receive financial support from other Union funds or financial instruments, that any double financing will be prevented and that they will be complementary with actions funded by the Structural Funds;

12.  Recalls that the design of the coordinated package of personalised services supported by the EGF should anticipate future labour market perspectives and required skills, and should be compatible with the shift towards a resource-efficient and sustainable economy;

13.  Reiterates that assistance from the EGF must not replace actions which are the responsibility of companies, by virtue of national law or collective agreements, or measures for restructuring companies or sectors;

14.  Calls on the Commission to urge national authorities to provide more details, in future proposals, on the sectors which have growth prospects and are therefore likely to hire people, as well as to gather substantiated data on the impact of the EGF funding, including on the quality of jobs and the reintegration rate achieved through the EGF;

15.  Recalls its appeal to the Commission to assure public access to all the documents related to EGF cases;

16.  Approves the decision annexed to this resolution;

17.  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;

18.  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.  Finland’s application and the Commission's proposal

On 23 October 2017, the Commission adopted a proposal for a decision on the mobilisation of the EGF in favour of Finland to support the reintegration in the labour market of workers made redundant by three enterprises operating under the NACE Revision 2 Division 47 (Retail trade, except motor vehicles and motorcycles) in the NUTS level 2 regions of Länsi Suomi (FI19), Helsinki-Uusimaa (FI1B), Etelä-Suomi (FI1C) and Pohjois- Pohjanmaa Itä-Suomi (FI1D) in Finland. The majority of the redundancies (835) occurred in the Helsinki-Uusimaa region.

This is the fifth application to be examined under the 2017 budget and the ninth in the retail sector (NACE Revision 2 Division 47) since the establishment of the EGF. It concerns 1660 workers made redundant, of which 1500 are expected to participate in the proposed measures, and refers to the mobilisation of a total amount of EUR 2 499 360 from the EGF for Finland.

The application was sent to the Commission on 12 June 2017 and supplemented by additional information by 31 July 2017. The Commission finalised its assessment on 23 October 2017 and 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, as referred to in Article 4(1)(b) of the EGF Regulation.

Finland argues that the redundancies are linked to major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation, more particularly to the exponential growth of international online trading. In Finland, online sales of retail products have increased by 34% between 2010 and 2015, with Finnish consumers increasingly turning to non-EU web-shops (from 6% of all sales in 2008 to 19% in 2016). This has led to a steady decrease in the sales of conventional Finnish department stores since 2014.

At the same time, a major change in the nature of retail jobs has occurred, with part-time jobs requiring new skills, such as IT, forecasting, data analysis, communication, customer knowledge and logistical skills, on the rise. By contrast, 43% of Finnish retail staff is over 45 years old and lacks these skills.

The dismissals occurred at two major Finnish department store chains, Anttila and Stockman, and one subsidiary, Vallila. In early 2017, despite all efforts to improve their profitability and cash-flow, Anttila and Vallila had to close down completely. Stockman has faced similar problems since 2015 due to the rise of e-commerce, changing shopping habits and weak consumer confidence. As a result, Stockman’s customer figures have dropped by 40% between 2012 and 2016, sales turnover has decreased by 38% and the operational margin has gone into negative.

Stockman and Anttila were important employers in all four regions concerned. A large number of redundant workers are over the age of 55 and over 76% are women. Active labour market measures co-funded by the EGF are all the more important for improving the chances of reintegration in the labour market of these vulnerable groups. Particular importance has been paid to tailoring the proposed measures to the specific needs of the target groups, such as through personalised career coaching services for beneficiaries over 50.

The seven types of measures to be provided to redundant workers and for which EGF co-funding is requested consist of:

– Coaching measures and other preparatory measures: this measure includes job-seeking training for self-confidence building and updating job-seeking skills. It also includes job coaching on an individual basis.

– Employment and other business measures: this measure is to provide information, counselling and expert services for planning the re-employment of the beneficiaries through online services, vocational and job-seeking guidance, job offers, competency mapping, work ability evaluations and try-outs.

– Training courses: this measure is to provide vocational, continuing, change training and re-training courses. It also includes training courses for supporting entrepreneurship. The courses will be tailored to the target group.

– Start-up grant: the purpose of the grant is to promote the creation of business activity and employment of individual persons. The start-up grant helps to launch and establish a full-time business gradually. It is provided up to maximum 12 months. Training and coaching is also linked to the grant.

Career coaching pilots: for beneficiaries over 50 years old the pilot project will look at any physical or mental issues and other matters that may act as an impediment to re-employment. In addition some of the beneficaries might need intensive guidance.

– Pay-subsidy: this subsidy will be available to support employment in a new job, by reducing the payroll costs. The pay subsidy will be 30-50 percent of the payroll costs and paid to the employer. The length of the subsidy is 6-18 months, depending on the length of the unemployment period.

– Allowances for travel and accomodation: may be granted to the job seeker for travel costs and accomodation costs incurred during job-seeking or during training, aimed at promoting employment.

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 and do not substitute passive social protection measures.

The Finnish 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,

– the dismissing enterprises which have continued their activities after the lay-offs, have complied with their legal obligations governing the redundancies and provided for their workers accordingly,

– 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.

Finland has notified the Commission that the main source of national pre-financing or co-funding is the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment (MEAE) and that some services will also be funded from the operating expenditure of the Centres for Economic Development, Transport and Environment and the Employment and Economic Development Offices. The financial contribution will be managed and controlled by the Employment and Entrepreneurship Department of the MEAE. The independent Internal Auditing Unit, operating under the Permanent Secretary of the MEAE, will be the responsible body for auditing.

III.  Procedure

In order to mobilise the Fund, the Commission has submitted to the Budgetary Authority a request to transfer a global amount of EUR 2 499 360 from the EGF reserve (40 02 43) to the EGF budget line (04 04 01).

This is the fifth transfer proposal for the mobilisation of the Fund transmitted to the Budgetary Authority to date during 2017.

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 contribute to the assessment of the applications from the Fund.

ANNEX: LETTER OF THE COMMITTEE ON EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL AFFAIRS

D(2017)45120

Mr 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/2017/005 FI/retail - COM(2017) 618 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/2017/005 FI/retail 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 1 660 workers made redundant in three entreprises operating in in the economic sectors classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 47 - Retail trade, except motor vehicles and motorcycles;

B)  Whereas, in order to establish the link between the redundancies and major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation, Finland argues that the growth of online shopping (34% increase in online sales of retail products between 2010 and 2015) has had a major impact on the sales of conventional department stores and that non-EU webshops are particularly popular with Finnish consumers;

C)  Whereas 76,3% of the workers targeted by the measure are women and 23,7% are men; whereas 65,7% of the targeted beneficiaries are aged between 30 and 54 years, while 17,5% are between 55 and 64 years and 16,5% are between 15 and 29 years;

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 Finnish application:

1.  Agrees with the Commission that the intervention criteria set out in Article 4(1)(b) of the Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 are met and that, therefore, Finland is entitled to a financial contribution of EUR 2 499 360 under this Regulation which represents 60% of the total cost of EUR 4 165 600;

2.  Notes that the Commission respected the deadline of 12 weeks from the reception of the completed application from the Finnish authorities until finalising its assessment on the compliance with the conditions for providing a financial contribution, on 23 October 2017, and notified it to Parliament on the same day;

3.  Notes that all four NUTS-2 regions of Finland are affected by the dismissals that occurred at two major Finnish department store chains; recognises that such stores have faced declining cash-flow and profitability arising from the growth of e-commerce, changing shopping habits and weak consumer confidence;

4.  Notes that the EGF co-funded personalised services for the redundant workers include coaching and other preparatory measures; employment and other business measures; training courses; start-up grants; career coaching pilots; pay-subsidies; and allowances for travel and accommodation;

5.  Considers that impediments to reemployment for those over 50 represent an important issue and awaits with interest an evaluation of the career coaching pilots that have been included for this group of redundant workers;

6.  Is concerned that employers receiving pay subsidies are not obliged to continue employing those workers for longer periods than that of the subsidy; notes that previous Finnish experience suggests that such workers find employment and move out of the subsidy system relatively quickly;

7.  Welcomes the consultations with stakeholders including representatives of the Centres for Economic Development, Transport and Environment (“ELY Centres”) of Uusimaa, Pirkanmaa, Pohjois-Pohjanmaa, Varsinais-Suomi and the the Employment and Economic Development Office (“TE Office”) of Uusimaa as well as representatives of Anttila and of the trade unions (PAM: Service Unions United) that took place to drawn up the co-ordinated package of personalised services;

8.  Notes that the income supports measures will be 22,05% of the overall package of personalised measures, well below the maximum 35% set out in the Regulation; and that these actions are conditional on the active participation of the targeted beneficiaries in job-search or training activities;

9.  Notes that the Finnish authorities have provided assurances that the proposed actions will not receive financial support from other Union funds or financial instruments, that any double financing will be prevented and that they will be complementary with actions funded by the Structural Funds;

10.  Welcomes Finland’s confirmation that a financial contribution from the EGF will not replace actions the enterprise concerned is required to take by virtue of national law or pursuant to collective agreements;

11.  Recalls that in line with Article 7 of the Regulation, the design of the coordinated package of personalised services should anticipate future labour market perspectives and required skills and should be compatible with the shift towards a resource-efficient and sustainable economy.

Yours sincerely,

Marita Ulvskog

ANNEX: LETTER OF THE COMMITTEE ON REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Letter of 7 November 2017 from Iskra Mihaylova, Chair of the Committee on Regional Development, to Jean Arthuis, Chair of the Committee on Budgets

Translation

Subject:  Mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund

Dear Mr Arthuis,

A Commission proposal for a decision to mobilise the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) has been referred for opinion to the Committee on Regional Development. I understand that it is intended that a report on this will be adopted in the Committee on Budgets on 22 November 2017:

-  COM(2017)0618 proposes an EGF contribution of EUR 2 499 360 for 1500 workers made redundant in three companies of the retail sector in Finland. The enterprises operate in the economic sector classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 47 (Retail trade, except motor vehicles and motorcycles). The redundancies are located in the NUTS level 2 regions of FI19 - Lansi Suomi, FI1B - Helsinki-Uusimaa, FI1C - Etelä-Suomi and FI1D - Pohjois- ja Itä-Suomi FI1D.

The rules applicable to financial contributions from the EGF are laid down in 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.

The Committee coordinators have assessed this proposal, and asked me to write to you reporting that the majority of this Committee has no objection to this mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund to allocate the above-mentioned amount as proposed by the Commission.

Yours sincerely,

Iskra MIHAYLOVA
