Motion for a European Parliament resolution on employment and a European preference in the context of public procurement in Europe

The European Parliament,

 having regard to Rule 133 of its Rules of Procedure,

A. whereas, on 8 February 2019, a South Korean supplier was awarded the contract to supply trams to Warsaw (Poland)[1];

B. whereas, however, the purchase of these trams will be partly financed by the European Union, in other words principally by taxpayers from Germany, France and Italy, Member States that are net contributors to the EU budget;

C. whereas this will translate into job losses for European manufacturers, such as Alstom, and whereas there are 17 million jobseekers in the EU;

1. Calls for the Treaties to be renegotiated in order for a European preference to be obligatory in the context of public procurement in the European Union, provided that production in Europe is possible and that full employment has not been achieved.
