MOTION FOR A EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT RESOLUTION

on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on the mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (application from Sweden – EGF/2016/002 SE/Ericsson)

COM(2016)0554 – C8‑0355/2016 – 2016/2214(BUD))

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the Commission proposal to the European Parliament and the Council (COM(2016)0554 – C8‑0355/2016),

–  having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (2014-2020) and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1927/2006(1) (EGF Regulation),

–  having regard to Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1311/2013 of 2 December 2013 laying down the multiannual financial framework for the years 2014-2020(2), and in particular Article 12 thereof,

–  having regard to the Interinstitutional Agreement of 2 December 2013 between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management(3) (IIA 2 December 2013), and in particular point 13 thereof,

–  having regard to the trilogue procedure provided for in point 13 of the IIA 2 December 2013,

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

–  having regard to the letter of the Committee on Regional Development,

–  having regard to the report of the Committee on Budgets (A8-0272/2016),

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

B.  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 to the IIA of 2 December 2013 in respect of the adoption of decisions to mobilise the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF);

C.  whereas the adoption of the EGF Regulation reflects the agreement reached between the Parliament and the Council to reintroduce the crisis mobilisation criterion, to set the Union financial contribution to 60 % of the total estimated cost of proposed measures, to increase efficiency for the treatment of EGF applications in the Commission and by the Parliament and the Council by shortening the time for assessment and approval, to widen eligible actions and beneficiaries by introducing self-employed persons and young people and to finance incentives for setting up own businesses;

D.  whereas Sweden submitted application EGF/2016/002 SE/Ericsson for a financial contribution from the EGF, following redundancies in the economic sector classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 26 (Manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products) mainly in the NUTS level 2 regions of Stockholm (SE11), Östra Mellansverige (SE12), Sydsverige (SE22) and Västsverige (SE23) and whereas 918 out of 1556 redundant workers eligible for the EGF contribution are expected to participate in in the measures;

E.  whereas the application was submitted under the intervention criteria of point (a) of Article 4(1) of the EGF Regulation, which requires at least 500 workers being made redundant over a reference period of four months in an enterprise in a Member State, including workers made redundant by suppliers and downstream producers and / or self-employed persons whose activity has ceased;

F.  whereas facing stagnating growth and simultaneously harder competition with Asian producers, Ericsson has been scaling down telecom hardware production, a process that started two decades ago;

1.  Agrees with the Commission that the conditions set out in point (a) of Article 4(1) of the EGF Regulation are met and that, therefore, Sweden is entitled to a financial contribution of EUR 3 957 918 under that Regulation, which represents 60 % of the total cost of EUR 6 596 531, that will help 918 targeted beneficiaries return to the labour market;

2.  Notes that Sweden submitted the application for a financial contribution from the EGF on 31 March 2016, and that following additional information provided by Sweden, its assessment was finalised by the Commission on 5 September 2016 and notified to Parliament the same day, thereby respecting the deadline of 12 weeks from receipt of the completed application;

3.  Notes that the IT and telecommunication industries are dominated by Asian manufacturers which have become an outsourcing destination; points out that Ericsson has gradually been cutting staff in Sweden (from 21 178 in 2005 to 17 858 in 2014), but in the meantime been growing tremendously worldwide (from 56 055 in 2005 to 118 055 in 2014);

4.  Emphasises that the regions affected are faced with a relatively large group of older workers with similar backgrounds who have been made redundant at the same time and that most of them, particularly those located in Kista, the town with the highest number of redundancies, do not possess the skills sought by the local labour market;

5.  Welcomes Sweden’s decision to concentrate potential EGF assistance on the Kista, Katrineholm and Kumla sites, which face the greatest challenges, while also offering individualised help to workers made redundant at the other sites;

6.  Recalls the diversity of employees, both blue- and white-collar, affected by the redundancies; and is concerned that some workers face a labour market with rather low demand in traditional manufacturing industries; acknowledges the opportunities for these workers in the public or private sector service industries, which would require major retraining efforts;

7.  Acknowledges Arbetsförmedlingen’s (the Swedish Public Employment Service) assessment that blue-collar workers have potential opportunities in public or private sector service industries, provided major retraining is offered to them;

8.  Recognises that most of the affected white-collar workers are engineers, some of whom are specialised in niches that are unique to Ericsson, but welcomes the confidence of the Swedish PES that a personalised package of training programmes and coaching will enable most of those redundant employees to find new jobs of high quality;

9.  Notes that the EGF co-funded personalised services for the redundant workers include: counselling and career guidance; sheltered and supported employment and rehabilitation measures; education and training; and job search allowances; welcomes the special emphasis that will be placed on participants aged 50 and above when providing motivational coaching and career planning;

10.  Notes that the income support measures amount to 33,92 % of the overall package of personalised measures, close to the maximum 35 % set out in the EGF Regulation and that these actions are conditional on the active participation of the targeted beneficiaries in job-search or training activities; considers this relatively high percentage to be justified in view of the significant proportion of older workers concerned and the provision of individual support to participants with learning disabilities;

11.  Notes that the coordinated package of personalised services has been drawn up in consultation with the targeted beneficiaries and their representatives as well as with local public actors, taking into consideration that 22 % of workers are female and 78 % male;

12.  Recalls that, in line with Article 7 of the EGF Regulation, the design of the coordinated package of personalised services supported by the EGF should anticipate future labour market perspectives and required skills and should be compatible with the shift towards a resource-efficient and sustainable economy;

13.  Recalls the importance of improving the employability of all workers by means of adapted training and the recognition of skills and competences gained throughout a worker's professional career; expects the training on offer in the coordinated package to be adapted not only to the needs of the dismissed workers but also to the actual business environment;

14.  Welcomes the Swedish authorities’ assurance that special efforts will be undertaken to break traditional gender barriers, including encouraging male beneficiaries to find jobs in the health care sector, as well as the contribution the measures will make to the 16 Swedish Environmental Quality Objectives;

15.  Asks the Commission to further set out, in future proposals, the sectors in which the workers are likely to find employment and if the training on offer is aligned to the future economic prospects and labour market needs in the regions concerned by the dismissals;

16.  Notes that the Swedish authorities have confirmed that the proposed actions will not receive financial support from other Union funds or financial instruments, that any double financing will be prevented and that those actions are complementary to actions funded by the Structural Funds; reiterates its call to the Commission to present a comparative evaluation of those data in its annual reports in order to ensure full respect for existing regulations and that no duplication of Union-funded services can occur;

17.  Notes that the Manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products sector has been the subject of another 14 EGF applications, 11 of which have been based on trade related globalisation and three on the global financial and economic crisis;

18.  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 of measures for restructuring companies or sectors;

19.  Appreciates the improved procedure put in place by the Commission, following the Parliament's request for the accelerated release of grants; notes the time pressure that the new timetable implies and the potential impact on the effectiveness of case instruction;

20.  Asks the Commission to assure public access to the documents related to EGF cases;

21.  Approves the decision annexed to this resolution;

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

23.  Instructs its President to forward this resolution, including its Annex, to the Council and the Commission.

ANNEX: DECISION OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL

on the mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (following an application from Sweden – EGF/2016/002 SE/Ericsson)

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (2014-2020) and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1927/2006(1), and in particular Article 15(4) thereof,

Having regard to the Interinstitutional Agreement of 2 December 2013 between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management(2), and in particular point 13 thereof,

Having regard to the proposal from the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)  The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) aims to provide support for workers made redundant and self-employed persons whose activity has ceased as a result of major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation, as a result of a continuation of the global financial and economic crisis, or as a result of a new global financial and economic crisis, and to assist them with their reintegration into the labour market.

(2)  The EGF is not to exceed a maximum annual amount of EUR 150 million (2011 prices), as laid down in Article 12 of Council Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1311/2013(3).

That application complies with the requirements for determining a financial contribution from the EGF as laid down in Article 13 of Regulation (EU) No  1309/2013.

(4)  The EGF should, therefore, be mobilised in order to provide a financial contribution of EUR 3 957 918 in respect of the application submitted by Sweden.

(5)  In order to minimise the time taken to mobilise the EGF, this decision should apply from the date of its adoption,

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 Article 12 of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 1311/2013 laying down the multiannual financial framework for the years 2014-2020(1) and of Article 15 of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013(2), the Fund may not exceed a maximum annual amount of EUR 150 million (2011 prices). The appropriate amounts are entered into the general budget of the Union as a provision.

As concerns the procedure, according to point 13 of the Interinstitutional Agreement of 2 December 2013 between the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on budgetary discipline, on cooperation in budgetary matters and on sound financial management(3), 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 the event of disagreement, a trilogue shall be initiated.

II. Ericsson application and the Commission's proposal

On 5 September 2016, the Commission adopted a proposal for a decision on the mobilisation of the EGF in favour of Sweden to support the reintegration in the labour market of workers made redundant to Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson operating in the NACE Rev. 2 division 26 ('Manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products trailers’) mainly in the NUTS(4) level 2 regions of Stockholm (SE11), Östra Mellansverige (SE12), Sydsverige (SE22) and Västsverige (SE23).

This is the eighth application to be examined under the 2016 budget and the 15th for the Manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products sectors and refers to the mobilisation of a total amount of EUR 3 957 918 from the EGF for Sweden. It concerns 918 workers made redundant.

The application was sent to the Commission on 31 March 2016 and supplemented by additional information up to 2 May 2016. The Commission has concluded, in accordance with all applicable provisions of the EGF Regulation, that the application meets the conditions for a financial contribution from the EGF.

The Swedish trade union “Unione”n states that Ericsson is still hiring in Europe, but only people with an entirely different set of skills. Employees with skills in hardware production and development are generally not reemployed by the company(5). Most of the company's growth nowadays is in software development. Even though some software development is done in Europe, most of the growth in this sector is also happening in Asia(6), where Ericsson is expanding its activities(7).

The personalised services which are to be provided to workers made redundant consist of four types of measures: (i) counselling and career guidance declined in in-depth assessment and individual planning, guidance counselling and motivation coaching and career planning, (ii) sheltered and supported employment and rehabilitation measures, (iii) education and training, (iv) job search allowance.

According to the Commission, the described measures constitute active labour market measures within the eligible actions set out in Article 7 of the EGF Regulation. These actions do not substitute passive social protection measures.

The Swedish authorities have provided all necessary assurances regarding the following:

–  the principles of equality of treatment and non-discrimination will be respected in the access to the proposed actions and their implementation,

–  the requirements laid down in national and EU legislation concerning collective redundancies have been complied with,

–  Ericsson, which has continued its activities after the lay-offs, has complied with its legal obligations governing the redundancies and provided for their workers accordingly,

–  the proposed actions will not receive financial support from other Union funds or financial instruments and any double financing will be prevented,

–  the proposed actions will be complementary with actions funded by the Structural Funds,

–  the financial contribution from the EGF will comply with the procedural and material Union rules on State aid.

Sweden has notified the Commission that the EGF measures are co-funded by the Swedish government through Arbetsförmedlingen (the Swedish Public Employment Service) budget.

III. Procedure

In order to mobilise the Fund, the Commission has submitted to the Budget Authority a transfer request for a global amount of EUR 3 957 918 from the EGF reserve (40 02 43) to the EGF budget line (04 04 01).

This is the eighth transfer proposal for the mobilisation of the Fund transmitted to the Budgetary Authority to date during 2016.

The trilogue procedure shall be initiated in the event of disagreement, as provided for in Article 15(4) of the EGF Regulation.

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

ANNEX: LETTER OF THE COMMITTEE ON EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL AFFAIRS

CF/jb

D(2016)41682

Mr Jean Arthuis

Chair of the Committee on Budgets

ASP 09G205

Subject: Opinion on the mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) for the case EGF/2016/002 SE/Ericsson from Sweden - COM(2016) 0554 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/2016/002 SE/Ericsson 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 4(1)(a) of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 (EGF Regulation) and relates to 1 556 workers made redundant in Ericsson (Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson);

B)  Whereas the primary enterprise operates in the economic sectors classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 26 (Manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products) and 62 (Computer programming, consultancy and related activities);

C)  Whereas the request follows the partial or entire closure of wireless-telecom hardware production lines at various Ericsson sites (Borås, Karlskrona, Kista/Stockholm, Kumla, Linköping and Gothenburg) in Sweden, and the closure of an entire plant in the city of Katrineholm;

D)  Whereas the redundancies made by Ericsson are mainly located in the NUTS level 2 regions of of Stockholm (SE11) and Östra Mellansverige (SE12), but also in Sydsverige (SE22) and Västsverige (SE23);

E)  Whereas, in order to establish the link between the redundancies and major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation, Sweden argues that the redundancies occurred in Ericsson’s telecom hardware production business, which has experienced outsourcing to Asia where the strongest growth markets are located and equivalent quality can be delivered at lower costs;

F)  Whereas 70% of the workers targeted by the measure are men and 30% are women; whereas 33,4% of the redundant workers are aged between 55 and 64 years and 64,2% between 30 and 54 years.

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 Swedish application:

1.  Agrees with the Commission that the intervention criteria set out in Article 4(1)(a) of the Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 are met and that, therefore, Sweden is entitled to a financial contribution of EUR 3 957 918 under this Regulation which represents 60% of the total cost of EUR 6 596 531;

2.  Notes that the Commission respected the deadline of 12 weeks from the reception of the completed application from the Swedish authorities, on 13 June 2016, until finalising its assessment on the compliance with the conditions for providing a financial contribution, on 5 September 2016, and notified it to Parliament on the same day;

3.  Notes that the NACE 2 Division 26 sector has been the subject of 14 previous EGF applications, 11 of which were based on trade-related globalisation;

4.  Emphasises that the regions affected are faced with a relatively large group of older workers with similar backgrounds who have been made redundant at the same time and that most of them, particularly those located in Kista, the town with the highest number of redundancies, do not possess the skills sought by the local labour market;

5.  Welcomes Sweden’s decision to concentrate potential EGF assistance on on the Kista, Katrineholm and Kumla sites, which face the greatest challenges, while also offering individualised help to workers made redundant at the other sites;

6.  Acknowledges Arbetsförmedlingen’s (the Swedish Public Employment Service) assessment that blue-collar workers have potential opportunities in public or private sector service industries, provided major retraining is offered;

7.  Recognises that most of the affected white-collar workers are engineers, some of whom are specialised in niches that are unique for Ericsson, but welcomes the Swedish PES’ confidence that a personalised package of training programmes and coaching will enable most of these redundant employees to find new jobs of high quality.

8.  Notes that the EGF co-funded personalised services for the redundant workers include counselling and career guidance; sheltered and supported employment and rehabilitation measures; education and training; and job search allowances; welcomes the special emphasis that will be placed on participants aged 50 and above when providing motivational coaching and career planning;

9.  Notes that the income supports measures will be 33,92% of the overall package of personalised measures, close to the maximum 35% set out in the Regulation; and that these actions are conditional on the active participation of the targeted beneficiaries in job-search or training activities; considers this relatively high percentage to be justified in view of the significant proportion of older workers concerned and the provision of individual support to participants with learning disabilities;

10.  Welcomes the Swedish authorities’ assurance that special efforts will be undertaken to break traditional gender barriers, including by encouraging male beneficiaries to find jobs in the health care sector, as well as the contribution the measures will make to the 16 Swedish Environmental Quality Objectives;

11.  Notes that the Swedish authorities have confirmed that the proposed actions will not receive financial support from other Union funds or financial instruments, that any double financing will be prevented and that they are complementary with actions funded by the Structural Funds;

12.  Welcomes Sweden’s assurance that a financial contribution from the EGF will not replace actions the enterprise concerned is required to take by virtue of national law or pursuant to collective agreements;

13.  Recalls that in line with Article 7 of the Regulation, the design of the coordinated package of personalised services should anticipate future labour market perspectives and required skills and should be compatible with the shift towards a resource-efficient and sustainable economy.

Yours sincerely,

Thomas HÄNDEL

ANNEX: LETTER OF THE COMMITTEE ON REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Mr Jean ARTHUIS

Chairman

Committee on Budgets

European Parliament

Subject:  Mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund

Dear Mr. Arthuis,

A Commission proposal for a decision to mobilise the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) has been referred for opinion to the Committee on Regional Development. I understand that it is intended that a report on this will be adopted in the Committee on Budgets on 28 September 2016:

-  COM(2016)0554 proposes an EGF contribution of EUR 3 957 918 for 1 556 workers made redundant in Ericsson (Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson). Ericsson operates primarily in the economic sectors classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 26 (Manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products) and 62 (Computer programming, consultancy and related activities). The redundancies made by Ericsson are mainly located in the NUTS level 2 regions of Stockholm (SE11) and Östra Mellansverige (SE12), but also in Sydsverige (SE22) and Västsverige (SE23), in Sweden.

The rules applicable to financial contributions from the EGF are laid down in Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 December 2013 on the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (2014-2020) and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1927/2006.

The Committee coordinators have assessed this proposal, and asked me to write to you reporting that the majority of this Committee has no objection to this mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund to allocate the above-mentioned amount as proposed by the Commission.

Yours sincerely,

Iskra MIHAYLOVA
