The Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs, (ECON) will hold a public hearing with Danièle Nouy, Chair of the Supervisory Board of the ECB. At this occasion, Ms Nouy will present the ECB's second Annual Report on the Single Supervisory Mechanism.
In August 2015 the Commission published a Roadmap for the initiative ‘A new start to address the challenges of work-life balance faced by working families’ which will replace the 2008 Commission proposal to amend the Maternity Leave Directive. This hearing is considered as a base for the report (INI) being drafted by co-rapporteurs Vilija BLINKEVIČIŪTĖ (S&D, LT), for the Women's Rights Committee, and Tatjana ŽDANOKA (Greens/EFA), for the Employment Committee, on 'creating labour market conditions favourable for family-work balance.'
The hearing will analyse different aspects of working conditions and industrial relations, sociology of work and gender policies in work. The objective of this new initiative is to modernise and adapt the current EU legal and policy framework to allow for parents with children or those with dependent relatives to better balance caring and professional responsibilities, encourage a more equitable use of work-life balance policies between women and men, and to strengthen gender equality in the labour market.
