MOTION FOR A EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT RESOLUTION

on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on the mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (application from France – EGF/2017/009 FR/Air France)

(COM(2018)0230 – C8‑0161/2018 – 2018/2059(BUD))

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the Commission proposal to the European Parliament and the Council (COM(2018)230 – C8‑0161/2018),

–  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 (A8-0210/2018),

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 France submitted application EGF/2017/009 FR/Air France for a financial contribution from the EGF, following 1 858 redundancies in the economic sector classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 51 (Air transport) in the NUTS level 2 regions of Île-de-France (FR10) and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (FR82) in France;

D.  whereas supporting Union air companies is of crucial importance considering that the Union’s market share in the international air transport sector is decreasing;

E.  whereas the application is based on the intervention criteria of point (a) of Article 4(1) of the EGF Regulation, which requires at least 500 workers being made redundant over a reference period of four months in an enterprise in a Member State, including workers made redundant by suppliers and downstream producers and / or self-employed persons whose activity has ceased;

1.  Agrees with the Commission that the conditions set out in Article 4(1) of the EGF Regulation are met and that France is entitled to a financial contribution of EUR 9 894 483 under that Regulation, which represents 60 % of the total cost of EUR 16 490 805, comprising expenditure for personalised services of EUR 16 410 805 and expenditure for preparatory, management, information and publicity, control and reporting activities of EUR 80 000;

2.  Notes that the French authorities submitted the application on 23 October 2017, and that, following the provision of additional information by France, the Commission finalised its assessment on 23 April 2018 and notified it to Parliament on the same day;

3.  Notes that France started providing the personalised services to the targeted beneficiaries on the 19 May 2015, thus the period of eligibility for a financial contribution from the EGF will be from 19 May 2015 to 23 October 2019;

4.  Recalls that this is the second application from France, and the third concerning air transport, for a financial contribution from the EGF in relation to redundancies at Air France, following application EGF/2013/014 FR/Air France in 2013, EGF/2015/004 IT Alitalia in 2015 and a positive decision thereon(4);

5.  Recalls that the financial contribution from the EGF targets the redundant workers in order to help them find alternative employment and does not constitute a subsidy to companies;

6.  Notes that France argues that the redundancies are linked to major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation and, more particularly, to the serious economic disruption undergone by the international air transport sector, notably the decline of the Union’s market share in the face of the spectacular rise of three major companies in the Persian Gulf, which receive a very high level of State aid and subsidies and are subject to less restrictive social and environmental regulation than Union companies;

7.  Deplores the level of subsidies and State aid being received by Emirates, Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways, leading to massive increases in their capacity and weakening the position of European airport hubs including Paris Charles de Gaulle;

8.  Recalls that, on 8 June 2017, the Commission proposed a regulation on safeguarding competition in air transport(5) which seeks to ensure fair competition between Union air carriers and third country air carriers, with a view to maintaining conditions conducive to a high level of connectivity; notes that Parliament and the Council are expected to start negotiations on that legislative proposal in the autumn of 2018;

9.  Recalls that the redundancies that occurred at Air France are expected to have a significant adverse effect on the local economy, which has issues related to long-term unemployment and to the redeployment of workers aged 50 and over;

10.  Calls on Air France to ensure the necessary high-quality social dialogue;

11.  Notes that the application relates to 1 858 workers made redundant at Air France, with 76,2 % of all redundancies taking place in Ile-de-France, the majority of whom are between 55 and 64 years old; acknowledges, the importance of active labour market measures co-funded by the EGF for improving the chances of reintegration in the labour market; further notes that none of the workers made redundant are in age group 25-29 years and over 64 years old;

12.  Notes that France is planning five types of actions for the redundant workers covered by this application: (i) advisory services and vocational guidance for workers, (ii) vocational training, (iii) contribution for business recovery or business start-up, (iv) job-search allowance, (v) mobility allowance;

13.  Welcomes the way in which the co-ordinated package of personalised services has been drawn up in consultation with the representatives of the targeted beneficiaries and the social partners as well as the agreements between Air France, unions and the Central Works Council which ensured that all departures were voluntary;

14.  Notes that the EGF co-funded personalised services are intended for workers who, at the time of their voluntary departure, do not have any precise plans for redeployment and who wish to benefit from retraining measures, advice, guidance or assistance to set up or take over a business;

15.  Recognises that the French Labour Code requires a company employing more than one thousand people to propose measures and that the EGF application does not provide for any contributions for the first four months of the redeployment leave, which correspond to the minimum duration stipulated by French law;

16.  Notes that the income supports measures represent the maximum 35 % of the overall package of personalised measures, set out in the EGF Regulation, and that these actions are conditional on the active participation of the targeted beneficiaries in job-search or training activities;

17.  Recalls that, in line with Article 7 of the EGF 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;

18.  Stresses that the French authorities have confirmed that the eligible actions do not receive assistance from other Union funds or financial instruments;

19.  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;

20.  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; moreover, calls on the Commission to monitor the implementation of the EGF and to report back to Parliament;

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

22.  Approves the decision annexed to this resolution;

23.  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;

24.  Instructs its President to forward this resolution, including its Annex, to the Council and the Commission.

ANNEX: DECISION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

on the mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund following an application from France – EGF/2017/009 FR/Air France

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

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), and in particular Article 15(4) 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(2), and in particular point 13 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)  The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) aims to provide support for workers made redundant and self-employed persons whose activity has ceased as a result of major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation, as a result of a continuation of the global financial and economic crisis, or as a result of a new global financial and economic crisis, and to assist them with their reintegration into the labour market.

(2)  The EGF is not to exceed a maximum annual amount of EUR 150 million (2011 prices), as laid down in Article 12 of Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1311/2013(3).

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.  France’s application and the Commission's proposal

On 23 April 2018, the Commission adopted a proposal for a decision on the mobilisation of the EGF in favour of France to support the reintegration in the labour market of workers made redundant by one enterprise operating in the economic sector classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 51 (Air transport). The redundancies made by Air France are mainly located in the NUTS level 2 regions of Île-de-France (FR10) and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (FR82) in France. The proposal was transmitted to the European Parliament on 23 April 2018.

This is the sixth application to be examined under the 2018 budget and the third in the economic sector classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 51 (Air transport) since the establishment of the EGF. It concerns 1 858 workers made redundant and refers to the mobilisation of a total amount of EUR 9 894 483 from the EGF for France.

The application was sent to the Commission on 23 October 2017 and supplemented by additional information by 1 February 2018. The Commission finalised its assessment on 23 April 2018 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) of the EGF Regulation.

France argues that the redundancies are linked to major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation and more particularly, the serious economic disruption undergone by the international air transport sector, notably the decline of the EU’s market share. The French authorities attribute the most damaging effects of the globalisation of air transport on the EU companies to the very strong increase in capacity of Emirates, Qatar Airways and Etihad Airways which continues since 2012.

The largest number of redundancies occurred in Ile-de-France (76,2 %) and in Provence-Alpes-Côte d' Azur — PACA — (11,7 %), territories that have issues related with long-term unemployment and job seekers aged 50+. This age group represents 79 % of the total number of redundancies. A large number of redundant workers are also women (47.6 %). 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 groups.

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

– Advisory services and vocational guidance for workers: The workers will be accompanied and oriented towards their projects for redeployment as workers or self-employed persons. The participants will avail of job-to-job counselling and guidance, job search support, coaching, information on available training, promotion of entrepreneurship and advice on business start-up, etc.

– Vocational training: The workers will be proposed various types of trainings which are tailored to their needs, as identified by the counsellors providing the advisory services. Particular attention will be paid to the 'parcours encadrés' which are vocational trainings of long duration on jobs in demand.

– Contribution for business recovery or business start-up: Workers who start their own businesses (business recovery or start-up) will receive up to EUR 15 000 to cover setting-up costs, investment in assets and current expenditure. The contribution will be paid in various instalments once certain milestones have been reached.

– Job-search allowance: This monthly allowance, paid until the end of the redeployment leave, amounts to 70 % of the worker's last gross salary. This amount is calculated based on the assumption of the workers' full-time participation in active labour market measures; if participation is lower extent, the EGF will pay workers an allowance which is proportionate to their actual participation.

– Mobility allowance: The targeted worker who accepts a job, involving a change of residence of more than 100 km from the current place of residence, will receive a lump sum of EUR 3 000 to cover the necessary expenditure. This amount will be increased by EUR 500 for the non-separated spouse, PACS partner(4) or domestic partnership ('concubinage') and additional EUR 500 per child.

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 French 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 enterprise, which has 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 financial contribution from the EGF will comply with the procedural and material Union rules on State aid.

France has notified the Commission that the source of national pre-financing or co-funding is Air France. The financial contribution will be managed by the Délégation générale à l’emploi et à la formation professionnelle (DGEFP) of the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Vocational Training and Social Dialogue, in particular by the unit Fonds national de l'emploi (DGEFP - MFNE).

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 9 894 483 from the EGF reserve (40 02 43) to the EGF budget line (04 04 01).

This is the sixth transfer proposal for the mobilisation of the Fund transmitted to the Budgetary Authority to date during 2018.

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(2018)17345

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/2017/009 FR/Air France

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/2017/009 FR/Air France 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)(a) of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 (EGF Regulation) and relates to 1 858 workers made redundant in one entreprise, Air France, operating in in the economic sector classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 51 (Air transport)

B)  Whereas, in order to establish the link between the redundancies and major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation, France argues that the international air transport sector has undergone serious economic disruption, in particular a decline of the EU’s market share. The very strong increase in capacity of the Gulf airlines has played a major role in this decline;

C)  Whereas 52,4 % of the workers targeted by the measure are men and 47,6 % are women; whereas 64,4 % of the targeted beneficiaries are aged between 55 and 64 years, while 35,6% are between 30 and 54 years;

D)  Whereas former employees of this company have received EGF support in one previous case (EGF/2013/014, FR Air France).

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 French application:

1.  Agrees with the Commission that the intervention criteria set out in Article 4(1)(a) of the Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 are met and that, therefore, France is entitled to a financial contribution of EUR 9 894 483 under this Regulation which represents 60% of the total cost of EUR 16 490 805;

2.  Notes that the Commission respected the deadline of 12 weeks from the reception of the completed application from the French authorities until finalising its assessment on the compliance with the conditions for providing a financial contribution, on 23 April 2018, and notified it to Parliament on the same day;

3.  Deplores the level of subsidies and state aid being received by Emirates, Qatar Airways and Etihad, leading to massive increases in their capacity and weakening the position of European airport hubs including Paris Charles de Gaulle;

4.  Recalls that, on 8 June 2017, the Commission proposed a regulation on safeguarding competition in air transport(1) which seeks to ensure fair competition between Union air carriers and third country air carriers, with a view to maintain conditions conducive to a high level of connectivity; notes that Parliament and Council will start negotiations on this proposal in the autumn;

5.  Recognises that the high proportion of workers aged 50+ increases the difficulty of finding alternative employment for the targeted beneficiaries;

6.  Notes that the EGF co-funded personalised services are intended for workers who, at the time of their voluntary departure, do not have any precise plans for redeployment and who wish to benefit from retraining measures, advice, guidance or assistance to set up or take over a business;

7.  Recognises that the French Labour Code requires a company employing more than one thousand people to propose measures and that the EGF application does not provide for any contributions for the first four months of the redeployment leave, which correspond to the minimum duration stipulated by law;

8.  Welcomes the way in which the co-ordinated package of personalised services has been drawn up in consultation with the representatives of the targeted beneficiaries and the social partners as well as the agreements between the firm, unions and the Central Works Council which ensured that all departures were voluntary;

9.  Notes that the income supports measures represent the maximum 35% of the overall package of personalised measures, 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;

10.  Notes that the French authorities confirmed that the proposed actions will not also receive financial contributions from national funds or other Union financial instruments;

11.  Welcomes France’s assurance 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;

12.  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

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 4 June 2018:

-  COM(2018)0230 proposes an EGF contribution of EUR 9 894 483 for 1 858 workers made redundant in Air France. Air France operates in the economic sector classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 51 (Air transport). The redundancies made by the enterprise concerned are mainly located in the NUTS level 2 region of Île-de-France (FR10) and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (FR82).

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.
