on unemployment in the EU and the failure to address unemployment-related issues in plenary  
B8‑0091/2019

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to Rule 133 of its Rules of Procedure,

A.  whereas 17 million people in the EU are unemployed;

B.  whereas the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs, which meets in Brussels every month, has completed 200 procedures(1) since the start of the 2014-2019 parliamentary term;

C.  whereas, however, only very few procedures on measures to combat unemployment get as far as the plenary;

D.  whereas, instead, MEPs adopt reports on the state of affairs in every country around the world(2) and, sometimes, focus on highly technical matters that have little to do with everyday life;

E.  whereas unemployment-related issues are as complex as they are diverse: training, skills, digitisation and robotisation, rural depopulation, etc.;

1.  Calls for unemployment-related issues to be addressed in plenary, at least once at every Strasbourg part-session.

(1)
