(COM(2011)0420 – C7-0193/2011 – 2011/2158(BUD))

The European Parliament,

–   having regard to the Commission proposal to the European Parliament and the Council (COM(2011)0420 – C7-0193/2011),

–   having regard to the Interinstitutional Agreement of 17 May 2006 between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline and sound financial management(1) (IIA of 17 May 2006), and in particular point 28 thereof,

–   having regard to Regulation (EC) No 1927/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 December 2006 on establishing the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund(2) (EGF Regulation),

     having regard to the trilogue procedure as provided for in point 28 of the IIA of 17 May 2006,

–   having regard to the letter of the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs,

–   having regard to the report of the Committee on Budgets (A7-0396/2011),

A. whereas the European Union has set up the appropriate legislative and budgetary instruments to provide additional support to workers who are suffering from the consequences of major structural changes in world trade patterns and to assist their reintegration into the labour market,

B.  whereas the scope of the EGF was broadened for applications submitted from 1 May 2009 to include support for workers made redundant as a direct result of the global financial and economic crisis,

C. whereas the Union’s financial assistance to workers made redundant should be dynamic and made available as quickly and efficiently as possible, in accordance with the Joint Declaration of the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission adopted during the conciliation meeting on 17 July 2008, and having due regard for the IIA of 17 May 2006 in respect of the adoption of decisions to mobilise the EGF,

D. whereas France has requested assistance in respect of a case concerning 4 445 redundancies, of which 3 582 targeted for assistance, in the enterprise Renault s.a.s. and seven of its suppliers from the automotive industry,

E. whereas the EGF application submitted by France does not cover the Renault workers who opted for the early retirement scheme and to which the EGF aid could not be allocated under Regulation (EC) No 1927/2006, but saw their pension rights altered by the pension reform which came into force in the meantime; whereas the efforts made by all parties involved to find a viable solution so that these former Renault workers can complement their pension rights should be noted; whereas in this regard, the efforts made by the French government, as well as the written engagement made by Renault should be underlined; whereas the constructive dialogue between all parties concerned should be continued until a satisfactory solution is found;

F.  whereas the application fulfils the eligibility criteria set up by the EGF Regulation,

1. Requests the institutions involved to make the necessary efforts to improve procedural and budgetary arrangements in order to accelerate the mobilisation of the EGF; appreciates in this sense the improved procedure put in place by the Commission, following the Parliament's request for accelerating the release of grants, aimed at presenting to the budgetary authority the Commission's assessment on the eligibility of an EGF application together with the proposal to mobilise the Fund; hopes that further improvements in the procedure will be reached in the framework of the upcoming reviews of the EGF and that greater efficiency, transparency and visibility of the Fund will be achieved; takes note, however, of the lengthy assessment period in respect of this particular application for the mobilisation of the EGF for Renault s.a.s and seven of its suppliers;

2. Notes that the first results on the efficiency of the measures targeting the dismissed workers should soon be available; notes that the success rates are a key indicator of the efficiency of the fund and calls on the Commission for a strong and close monitoring and guidance in ensuring that the training on offer matches the local economic trends;

3.  Recalls the institutions’ commitment to ensuring a smooth and rapid procedure for the adoption of the decisions on the mobilisation of the EGF, providing one-off, time-limited individual support geared to helping workers who have suffered redundancies as a result of globalisation and the financial and economic crisis; emphasises the role that the EGF can play in the reintegration of workers made redundant into the labour market;

4.  Stresses that, in accordance with Article 6 of the EGF Regulation, it should be ensured that the EGF supports the reintegration of individual redundant workers into employment; further stresses that the EGF-financed measures should lead to long-term employment; reiterates that assistance from the EGF must not replace actions which are the responsibility of companies by virtue of national law or collective agreements, nor measures restructuring companies or sectors;

5.  Notes that the information provided on the coordinated package of personalised services to be funded from the EGF includes information on the complementarity with actions funded by the Structural Funds; reiterates its call to the Commission to present a comparative evaluation of these data in its annual reports as well;

6. Notes the fact that following repeated requests from the Parliament, for the first time the 2011 budget shows payment appropriations of EUR 47 608 950 on the EGF budget line 04 05 01; recalls that the EGF was created as a separate specific instrument with its own objectives and deadlines;

7.  Approves the decision annexed to this resolution;

8.  Instructs its President to sign the decision with the President of the Council and to arrange for its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union;

9.  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 point 28 of the Interinstitutional Agreement of 17 May 2006 on budgetary discipline and sound financial management(1) and of the Article 12 of Regulation (EC) No 1927/2006(2), the Fund may not exceed a maximum amount of EUR 500 million, drawn from any the margin under the global expenditure ceiling from the previous year, and / or from the cancelled commitment appropriations from the previous two years, excluding those related to Heading 1b. The appropriate amounts are entered into the budget as a provision as soon as the sufficient margins and/or cancelled commitments have been identified.

As concerns the procedure, 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 parallel, a trilogue could be organised in order to find an agreement on the use of the Fund and the amounts required. The trilogue can take a simplified form.

II. State of play: Commission's proposal

On 11 July 2011 the Commission adopted a new proposal for a decision on the mobilisation of the EGF in favour of France in order to support the reintegration in the labour market of workers made redundant due to the global financial and economic crisis.

This is the thirteenth application to be examined under the 2011 budget and refers to the mobilisation of a total amount of EUR 24.493.525 from the EGF for France. It concerns 4 445 redundancies, of which 3 582 targeted for assistance, in the French enterprise Renault and seven of its suppliers during the four-month reference period from from 1 April 2009 to 31 July 2009.

The application, case EGF/2009/019 FR/ Renault from France, was submitted to the Commission on 09 October 2009 and supplemented by additional information up to 10 February 2011. It was based on the intervention criterion of Art. 2 (a) of the EGF Regulation, which requires at least 500 redundancies over a four-month period in an enterprise in a Member State, including workers made redundant in its suppliers and downstream producers. The application cites 1 384 redundancies in Renault s.a.s and six suppliers during the four month period from 1 April 2009 to 31 July 2009 and a further 3 061 redundancies in Renault s.a.s and seven suppliers outside the reference period, but included in the same voluntary redundancy plan.

The total number of workers to benefit from the co-funded package of personalised services is 3 582, comprising of 1 384 redundancies in Renault and seven of its suppliers between 1 April 2009 and 31 July 2009, and a further 2 198 workers made redundant by the same 8 enterprises before and after the reference period, as provided for by Article 3a (b). This article of the EGF Regulation allows workers made redundant before and after the period provided in Article 2(a) to benefit from the personalised services co-financed by the EGF, provided that the redundancies occurred after the general announcement of the projected redundancies and a clear causal link can be established with the event which triggered redundancies during the reference period. In the case of Renault and its seven suppliers the 3 582 redundancies outside the reference period were a result of the same plan of voluntary redundancies.

One of the criteria for Commission's assessment was the evaluation of the link between the redundancies and major structural changes in world trade patterns or the financial crisis, which in this particular case is related to the increasing cost of credit and the hardening of credit conditions that Renault started to experience from 2008 onwards. This, coupled with a decrease in consumer demand for Renault vehicles, worsened Renaults economic situation.

Furthermore, according to the French authorities, the financial and economic crisis and its impact on the automotive sector could not have been foreseen.

Commission's assessment was also based on a description of the territory and the authorities and stakeholders concerned. The redundancies covered in this application occurred mainly in three regions in France: the Ile-de-France (53%), the Haute-Normandie (29,5%) and the Nord-Pas-de-Calais (12,5%). In the Ile-de-France, the redundancies occur mainly in the plant of Guyancourt Aubevoie (941) and as this concerns the region of Paris, unemployment levels are relatively low (4,7 % and 5,9 % respectively) and employment levels as a whole are rising (by respectively 3,6 % and 5,2 % between 2003 and 2007), while manufacturing employment is declining (respectively by 3,9 % and 15,2 % over the same period). In the Haute-Normandie, the redundancies occur in Cléon (334) near Rouen and Sandouville (887) near Le Havre, which is a region that has been suffering industrial decline (a drop in industrial employment by 8,9 % between 2003 and 2007) and thus offers fewer opportunities to the redundant workers. In the Nord-Pas-de-Calais, the redundancies occur mainly in Douai (306) and Maubeuge (153), which are zones of already high unemployment (13,8 % and 15,5 % as opposed to the national unemployment rate of 9,1 %).

The co-ordinated package of personalised services to be funded, including its compatibility with actions funded by the Structural Funds, includes measures for the support of the 4 445 workers who volunteered to leave the company and specifically the 3 582 targeted workers. The start date for the services for the redundant workers was 15 October 2008.

The present EGF application covers the following two provisions from the "Project Renault Volontariat" (aiming to support 3 582 of the 4 445 workers, who have volunteered to leave the company):

1. a "project professionel ou personnel"

2. a "congé de reclassement"

The first one is for those workers, who already know what they wish to do and need some transitional help (advice, training) how to reach the goal. The second option is for the workers willing to spend a period of up to or even more than 9 months being retrained and being helped with advice and guidance. Both schemes may also include the creation of a new business by the redundant worker. There are 2910 workers that chose option 2, and 679 joined option 1.

In the case of the congé de reclassement (article L1233-71 of the Code du Travail), an employer of more then 1 000 persons is obliged to offer the measures there defined for a period which may vary between a minimum of four and a maximum of nine months. Pursuant to the above mentioned law, months five to nine of this period are therefore optional and can be eligible for an EGF contribution in accordance with Article 6(1) of the EGF Regulation. Renault decided to offer these measures for up to nine months, depending on the worker's occupation, seniority and site. The application does not contain any expenditure on the congé de reclassement for the first four months of the scheme, which is the minimum laid down by the law, and also excludes all periods when the workers are still covered by their notices of dismissal.

The measures proposed to both workers choosing either of the 2 schemes cover:

· advisory services on job search and available training;

· training measures - varied according to the plans of redundant workers and for employees covered by option 2 these measures can be extended beyond the nine months of the congé de reclassement;

· allowance provided for "congé de reclassement" - this is a monthly allowance paid until the end of the congé de reclassement, equalling 65% of the workers' former salary, except for workers from the Sandouville site, which will receive 100% of their former salary for six months. The allowance will be paid by the EGF on a pro rata basis for each worker;

· support for business creation - this measure is available to both options and can grant up to EUR 12 000 for investment per business created, together with EUR 1 500 for interest on loans and up to EUR 500 for registration fees. A further EUR 3 000 can be paid for the recruitment of a worker from among the group of targeted workers of this application.

The expenditure for implementing the EGF also covers preparatory activities, as well as information and publicity, as stipulated in Article 3 of the EGF Regulation.

All measures presented by the French authorities are active labour market measures within the eligible actions defined in Article 3 of Regulation (EC) No 1927/ 2006. The EGF contribution of EUR 24 493 525 will cover 65% of the estimated total costs (EUR 37 682 346).

Renault has fulfilled its requirements for consulting the social partners throughout the procedure.

Concerning management and control systems France has notified the Commission that the financial contribution will be managed by the Mission du Fonds National de l'Emploi (FNE) within the Délégation générale à l'emploi et à la formation professionnelle (DGEFP) in the Ministry for the Economy, Industry and Employment.

In order to mobilise the Fund, the Commission has submitted to the Budget Authority a transfer request for a global amount of EUR 24 493 525 from the EGF reserve (40 02 43) in commitments to the EGF budget line 04 05 01.

The Rapporteur welcomes the fact that, following repeated requests from the Parliament, for the first time the 2011 budget shows payment appropriations (EUR 47.608.950) on the EGF budget line and welcomes the reinforcement of the 04.05.01. budget line by EUR 50 000 000 as foreseen through AB 2/2011.

She reminds in fact that the EGF was created as a separate specific instrument with its own objectives and deadlines and that as such deserves a dedicated allocation, which will avoid transfers from other budget lines - as happened in the past - which could be detrimental to the achievement of the various policies objectives.

This is the thirteenth proposal for the mobilisation of the Fund submitted to the Budget Authority in 2011. Therefore, deducing from the appropriations available the current amount requested (EUR 24.493.525) an amount of EUR 428.705.608 remains available until the end of 2011. This will leave more than 25% of the maximum annual amount earmarked for the EGF available for allocations during the last four month on 2011, as required by art. 12(6) of the EGF Regulation.

III. Procedure

The Commission has presented a transfer request in order to enter specific commitment appropriations in the 2011 budget, as required in Point 28 of the Interinstitutional Agreement of 17 May 2006.

The trilogue on the Commission's proposal for a Decision on the mobilisation of the EGF could take a simplified form, as provided for in Article 12(5) of the legal base, unless there is no agreement between the Parliament and the Council.

According to an internal agreement, the Employment and Social Affairs Committee (EMPL) should be associated to the process, in order to provide constructive support and contribution to the assessment of the applications from the Fund.

Following its evaluation, the EMPL committee of the European Parliament will give its view on the mobilisation of the Fund, which will be attached as letter to the present report.

The Joint Declaration of the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission, adopted during the conciliation meeting on 17 July 2008, has confirmed the importance of ensuring a rapid procedure with due respect of the Interinstitutional Agreement for the adoption of decisions on the mobilisation of the Fund.

ANNEX: LETTER OF THE COMMITTEE ON EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL AFFAIRS

M. Alain Lamassoure

President of the Committee on budgets

ASP 13E158

Subject: Opinion on the mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) for the case EGF/2009/019 FR/Renault from France (COM(2011)420 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/2009/019 FR/Renault from 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 2a) of the EGF regulation and targets 3 582 out of 4.445 redundancies from Renault and seven of its suppliers of which 1.384 were dismissed during the reference period between 1 April and 31 July 2009 and another 3.061 redundant workers of the same eight enterprises dismissed before and after the reference period; whereas all workers dismissed during the reference period are target by the EGF measures;

B) Whereas the French authorities argue that the redundancies were caused by the economic and financial crisis which, from 2008 onwards increased the costs of credit and hardened credit conditions (the interest rate rose from 5,60% to 14,50% within 10 months) which affected the ability of Renault to fund its own activities in the short term and its investment plans for the future;

C) Whereas the financial and economic crisis additionally caused serious drops in the demand for new Renault cars with the registrations of new cars plummeting by 27,5% in December 2008 compared to the same period in 2007;

D) Whereas the Commission has already recognised in past applications concerning the automotive industry that the financial and economic crisis affected in particular the car producers and its suppliers given that 60 to 80% of new vehicles sold in Europe are bought on credit;

E) Whereas the redundancies occurred mainly in three regions: Ile-de-France (53%), the Haute-Normandie (29,5%) and the Nord-Pas-de-Calais (12,55), suffering from a decline in manufacturing in the past years;

F) Whereas 83,4 % of the workers targeted by the measures are men and 16,6 % are women; whereas 72 % of the dismissed are older workers between 55 and 64 years old; whereas 11,8% of the targeted workers are disabled or suffer from a long-term health problem,

G) Whereas the Commission informed the EMPL committee that Amending Budget No3(1)(AB3/2011), adopted by the EP on 5 July 2011, provides for fresh payment appropriations of 50 million Euros on the EGF budget line 04 05 01 superseding the transfer of payments from other unused budget lines;

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 conditions set out in Article 2 a) of the EGF regulation (1927/2006) are met and that, therefore, France is entitled to a financial contribution under this regulation;

2.  Takes note of the Internal Memorandum on the Renault and Peugeot case chronology communicated by the Commission; regrets the period of 22 months of assessment between the submission of the application on 9 October 2009 and the presentation of the proposal for decision to the Budgetary Authority on 11 July 2011; notes that this is so far the longest period of assessment of an application for the mobilisation of the EGF since its creation in 2007 (case chronology annexed);

3.  Notes that the coordinated package of personalised services supported by the EGF is part of the "Projet Renault Volontariat" - a scheme under which 4 445 workers volunteered to leave Renault and which comprises also measures required by French national law in case of mass redundancies, like early retirement schemes;

4.  Stresses the fact that a group of workers did not take part in the measures financed by the EGF and opted for a work exemption at the age of 58, in a spirit of early-retirement, while their pension rights were altered by the pension reform that came into force in the meantime;

5.  Emphasises the fact that Renault did not anticipate the consequences of the widely discussed reform and did not take any measures to assure fair treatment of those workers; stresses that other companies carrying out similar dismissal plans in France at the time of the reform offered their workers possibility to continue and acquire full retirement rights and benefits and that the declaration of the French Minister of Social Affairs, Xavier Bertrand, of 3 October 2011, acknowledges the issue;

6.  Requests Renault to formally commit to take legal and financial measures so that the full pension rights and benefits of those workers can be restored while granting them an exemption from work at the equivalent conditions;

7.  Notes that EGF will only support measures additional to those required by virtue of national law falling within two not combinable categories: "projet professionnel ou personnel" - for workers who need transitional help to carry out their project - and "congé de reclassement" - for workers who have not yet chosen any specific objective or employment prospect;

8.  Recalls that the Commission in its Communication "Responding to the crisis in the European automotive industry" has presented an integrated approach to address structural problems by making the sector more competitive and more in tune with the needs of the future, to which EGF measures can positively contribute, albeit on a small scale;

9.  Concludes from additional explanations provided by the Commission that the lengthy assessment period is related to mutual misunderstandings between the Commission, the French Government and the project management of Renault on the eligibility of the different measures of "Projet Renault Volontariat"; notes in this respect that finally the volume of the project was reduced by 27%;

10.  Notes that along with the advisory services and training measures, the coordinated package includes allowances provided under the category "congé de reclassement" and based on individual contracts between the "cellule de reclassement" and 2 910 workers, which amount to an average of 8.765,40 EUR per worker payable under the condition that the workers participate in the measures on a full-time basis; requests more information sector wise on the types of training provided and highlights the importance of (re)training for active labour market measures in line with the future needs of the labour market so as to promote sustainable employment;

11.  Notes that given the delay between the measures targeting the dismissed workers and the application's instruction, first results to assess their efficiency are already available; deplores the low success rates and calls for a stronger assessment and more Commission guidance in ensuring that the training offers match the local economic trends;

12.  Notes that the measures will not replace measures within the responsibility of the company under national law or collective agreement and that the measures target individual workers and will not be used for restructuring of Renault;

13.  Notes, however, that despite the gloomy outlook, Renault reported an increase of 2.3% in its worldwide sales in the first half of 2008 and as a result its half year net profit rose from 1,07 billion EUR to 1,5 billion EUR;

14.  Observes that Renault is currently resorting to temporary workers and deplores that the EGF might provide an incentive for multinational companies to replace their contractual workforce by a more flexible and precarious one; believes that this issue needs to be addressed in the forthcoming revision of the EGF regulation;

15.  Requests the Commission to monitor and audit the way Renault will address the case of workers described in paragraph 4 following the request in paragraph 6;

16.  Requests the Committee on Budgets to put on hold a relevant part of the amount proposed by the Commission until the results of the audit are made available by the Commission;

17.  Requests the Commission to inform the relevant Committees of the European Parliament of the follow-up to this request.

Yours sincerely,

Pervenche Berès
