Parliamentary questions
23 November 2017
E-007219-17
Question for written answer
to the Council
Rule 130
Dominique Martin (ENF)

 Subject:  Statements by the President of the Eurogroup on the right to strike in Greece

The President of the Eurogroup, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, welcomed wage freezes and a new labour law in Greece during his speech on 9 November 2017 in front of Parliament’s Committee on Employment and Social Affairs. To be legal, strikes have to be supported by 50% of trade union representatives. Many of the MEPs present were outraged by this statement.

What legitimacy does the President of the Eurogroup have to speak out on a matter of intrinsic Member State sovereignty?
