MOTION FOR A EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT RESOLUTION

on the proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council on mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (application from Spain EGF/2017/001 ES/Castilla y León mining)(COM(2017)0266 – C8

‑0174/2017 – 2017/2079(BUD))

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to the Commission proposal to the European Parliament and the Council (COM(2017)0266 – C8‑0174/2017),

–  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 of 2 December 2013), and in particular point 13 thereof,

–  having regard to the trilogue procedure provided for in point 13 of the IIA of 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 (A8-0248/2017),

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 Spain submitted application EGF/2017/001 ES/Castilla y León for a financial contribution from the EGF, following redundancies in the economic sector classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 5 (Mining of coal and lignite) in the NUTS level 2 region of Castilla y León (ES41), and whereas 339 redundant workers, as well as up to 125 young people not in employment, education or training (NEETs) under the age of 30, are expected to participate in the measures; whereas the redundancies were made by Hullera Vasco Leonesa SA, Centro de Investigación y Desarrollo SA, Hijos de Baldomero García SA, Minas del Bierzo Alto SL and Unión Minera del Norte SA;

E.  whereas the application was submitted under the intervention criteria set out in Article 4(2) of the EGF Regulation, derogating from the eligibility criteria set out in Article 4(1)b, which requires that at least 500 workers are made redundant over a reference period of nine months in enterprises operating in the same economic sector defined at NACE Revision 2 Division level and located in one region or two contiguous regions defined at NUTS 2 level;

1.  Agrees with the Commission that the conditions set out in Article 4(2) of the EGF Regulation are met and that, therefore, Spain is entitled to a financial contribution of EUR 1 002 264 under that Regulation, which represents 60 % of the total cost of EUR 1 670 440;

2.  Notes that the Spanish authorities submitted the application for a financial contribution from the EGF on 20 January 2017, and that its assessment was finalised by the Commission on 2 June 2017 and notified to Parliament the same day;

3.  Recalls that over the last 10 years coal production in the Union and the global price of coal have fallen sharply, resulting in an increasing volume of coal imports from non-EU countries and many Union coal mines becoming unprofitable and being forced to close down; points out that those trends have been even more pronounced in Spain, leading to a reorganisation and reconversion of the coal mining sector; stresses that employment in the region of Castilla y León has been seriously affected by the impact of the crisis in the mining sector and points out that ten coal mining enterprises had to close in Castilla y León alone over the period 2010-2016;

4.  Notes that Spain requests that a derogation from Article 4(1)b be made on the grounds that the territory affected by the redundancies consists of a number of small, isolated towns in the remote, sparsely populated Cantabrian mountain valley, which are, for the most part, highly dependent on coal mining and suffer from limited connectivity, and can thus be considered a small labour market under Article 4(2);

5.  Highlights, in particular, the very low population density, the problems associated with mountainous terrain and the difficult employment situation in the North of the provinces of León and Palencia; expresses concern about the sharp decline in population, which has been proportionally greatest amongst those under 25;

6.  Points out that the financial contribution will target 339 workers made redundant, 97% of whom are men;

7.  Welcomes Spain’s decision to provide up to 125 NEETs under the age of 30 with personalised services co-financed by the EGF; understands that those services will include support to those interested in creating their own business;

8.  Notes that the measures will be guided by a study to be carried out on job creation and productive activities in the region of Castilla y León, in order to better define the initiatives referred to in the package;

9.  Notes that Spain is planning six types of measures for the redundant workers and NEETs covered by this application: (i) welcome and information sessions, (ii) occupational guidance and counselling, (iii) intensive job-search assistance, (iv) training in cross-sector skills and competences, and vocational training, (v) promotion of entrepreneurship, and (vi) support for business start-ups, as well as a programme of incentives;

10.  Notes that the incentives will correspond to 19,53 % of the overall package of personalised measures, well below the maximum 35 % set out in the EGF Regulation; and that those actions are conditional on the active participation of the targeted beneficiaries in job-search or training activities;

11.  Notes that the training courses provided will include workshops on job-search techniques, training in personal and social skills, in information and communication technologies (ICT), and in foreign languages while vocational training will focus on either enhancing mining-related skills that may be relevant to other economic sectors or developing skills for sectors such as: tourism and hospitality in rural areas; environmental restoration of mining basins; reforestation and landscaping;

12.   Welcomes the fact that consultations with stakeholders, including trade unions, business associations, the regional agency for economic development, innovation, financing and business internationalization and a public foundation attached to the regional public employment service, took place at the regional level to draw up the co-ordinated package of personalised services, and that the policy of equality between women and men, as well as the principle of non-discrimination will be applied in order to access the measures funded by the EGF and during its implementation;

13.  Recalls that, in line with Article 7 of the EGF 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;

14.  Welcomes the inclusion of contributions to the expenses for carers of dependent persons amongst the available incentives in view of the likely positive impact on gender balance; calls on the Commission to present detailed information on the use that is made of this possibility;

15.  Recalls the need for the swift transformation of Union economies and the fostering of relevant jobs in the light of the Paris COP 21 agreement;

16.  Notes the importance of launching an information campaign in order to reach the NEETs who could be eligible under these measures, ensuring gender balance wherever possible;

17.  Calls on the Commission to provide more details, in future proposals, on the sectors which have growth prospects and are therefore likely to hire people, as well as to gather substantiated data on the impact of the EGF funding, including on the quality of jobs and the reintegration rate achieved through the EGF;

18.  Notes that the Spanish authorities have confirmed that the eligible actions do not receive assistance from other Union financial instruments, and that any double financing will be prevented and that eligible actions will be complementary to actions funded by the structural funds;

19.  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 for restructuring companies or sectors;

20.  Welcomes the fact that the intervention plan will include a monitoring initiative in which the social actors should be able to participate, the purpose of which is to guarantee that the proposal is implemented in accordance with the recommendations of a study, to be carried out as part of the actions included in the initiative, concerning vocational training demands and activity opportunities, as well as to guarantee the sound management of the budget provided for;

21.  Recalls its appeal to the Commission to assure public access to all the documents related to EGF cases;

22.  Approves the decision annexed to this resolution;

23.  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;

24.  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 Spain – EGF/2017/001 ES/Castilla y León mining

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).

(3)  On 20 January 2017, Spain submitted an application to mobilise the EGF, in respect of redundancies in the economic sector classified under the Statistical classification of economic activities in the European Community ('NACE') Revision 2 Division 5 (Mining of coal and lignite) in the region of Castilla y León. It was supplemented by additional information provided in accordance with Article 8(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013. 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)  In accordance with Article 6(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013, Spain has decided to provide personalised services co-financed by the EGF also to 125 young persons not in employment, education or training (NEETs).

(5)  In accordance with Article 4(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013, the application from Spain is considered admissible since the redundancies have a serious impact on employment and the local economy.

(6)  The EGF should, therefore, be mobilised in order to provide a financial contribution of EUR 1 002 264 in respect of the application submitted by Spain.

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

HAVE ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

For the general budget of the Union for the financial year 2017, the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund shall be mobilised to provide the amount of EUR 1 002 264 in commitment and payment appropriations.

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.  Spain’s application and the Commission's proposal

On 2 June 2017, the Commission adopted a proposal for a decision on the mobilisation of the EGF in favour of Spain to support the reintegration in the labour market of workers made redundant in 5 mining enterprises operating under the NACE Revision 2 Division 5 (Mining of coal and lignite) in the NUTS level 2 region of Castilla y León (ES41) in Spain.

This is the third application to be examined under the 2017 budget and the first in the ‘mining of coal and lignite’ sector. It concerns 339 workers made redundant as well as up to 125 targeted young persons not in employment, education or training (NEETs) under the age of 30 and refers to the mobilisation of a total amount of EUR 1 002 264 from the EGF for Spain.

The application was sent to the Commission on 20 January 2017 and supplemented by additional information by 17 March 2017. The Commission finalised its assessment on 2 June 2017 and 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, as referred to in Article 4(2) of the EGF Regulation.

Given that the total number of redundant workers (339) is below the required number as laid down in the EG Regulation, Spain requests a derogation from the provisions of Article 4(1)b, which requires that at least 500 workers are made redundant over a reference period of nine months in enterprises operating in the same economic sector defined at NACE Revision 2 Division and located in one region or two contiguous regions defined at NUTS 2 level in a Member State. The derogation is requested under Article 4(2), on the grounds that the mining district affected by the redundancies consists of a number of small, isolated towns in the remote, sparsely populated Cantabrian mountain valley, which are for the most part highly dependent on coal mining and suffer from limited mobility and infrastructural connectivity, and can thus be considered a small labour market.

Moreover, the region suffers from a lack of job offers in the mining district and high emigration of persons in employable age, which leads to a distortion of the unemployment figures, particularly for the younger age groups. The latest redundancies risk further aggravating the employment situation and depopulation of the area.

The Spanish authorities state that the events giving rise to the redundancies are major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation, in particular a dramatic drop of the global coal price by close to 60 % over the period 2005-2015. This was due to a weak global economy and a low demand for coal following the slowdown in industrial production in Asia and the oversupply of coal in China. As a result, there was a sharp decline in domestic production and a big increase in the volume of coal imports from outside the EU to Spain, leading to a significant loss of profitability and closure of many mining enterprises in Spain. In the region of Castilla y León, coal production fell by 86 % between 2010 and 2015, leading to the closure of ten coal mining enterprises in this region over the period 2010-2016.

The personalised services which are to be provided to workers made redundant consist of six types of measures: (i) welcome and information sessions, (ii) occupational guidance and counselling, (iii) intensive job-search assistance, (iv) training in cross-sector skills and competences, and vocational training, (v) promotion of entrepreneurship, and (vi) support for business start-ups, as well as a programme of incentives;

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 Spanish 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,

–  the dismissing enterprises, which have continued their activities after the lay-offs, have complied with their 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.

Spain has notified the Commission that the source of national pre-financing or co-funding the autonomous region of Castilla y León. The financial contribution will be managed and controlled by the same bodies which are responsible for the European Social Fund (ESF).

III.  Procedure

In order to mobilise the Fund, the Commission has submitted to the Budgetary Authority a request to transfer a global amount of EUR 1 002 264 from the EGF reserve (40 02 43) to the EGF budget line (04 04 01).

This is the third transfer proposal for the mobilisation of the Fund transmitted to the Budgetary Authority to date during 2017.

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 contribute to the assessment of the applications from the Fund.

ANNEX: LETTER OF THE COMMITTEE ON EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIAL AFFAIRS

D(2017)25522

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/2017/001 ES/Castilla y León mining

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/2017/001 ES/ ES/Castilla y León mining and adopted the following opinion.

The EMPL committee and its Working Group 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(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013 (EGF Regulation) and relates to 339 workers made redundant in five entreprises operating in the economic sectors classified under the NACE Revision 2 Division 5 (Mining of coal and lignite);

B)  Whereas, in order to establish the link between the redundancies and major structural changes in world trade patterns due to globalisation, Spain argues that the European coal industry is facing increasing competition from cheaper non-European coal; whereas this is reflected in a 26,9% decline in EU production in the ten years to 2015 during which time world production increased by a similar percentage;

C)  Whereas 96,8% of the workers targeted by the measure are men and 3,2% are women; whereas 96,2 % of the targeted beneficiaries are aged between 30 and 54 years, while 1,8% are aged between 25 and 29 years and 2% between 55 and 64 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 Spanish application:

1.  Emphasises that the mining district of Castilla y León is mostly made up of remote mountain valleys which are sparsely populated and highly dependent on coal mining; considers therefore that the application fully meets the intervention criteria, set out in Article 4(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1309/2013;

2.  Agrees with the Commission that, therefore, Spain is entitled to a financial contribution of EUR 1 002 264 under this Regulation which represents 60% of the total cost of EUR 1 670 440;

3.  Notes that the Commission respected the deadline of 12 weeks from the reception of the completed application from the Spanish authorities until finalising its assessment on the compliance with the conditions for providing a financial contribution, on 2 June 2017, and notified it to Parliament on the same day;

4.  Highlights, in particular, the very low population density, the problems associated with being a mountainous area and the difficult employment situation in the north of the provinces of León and Palencia; expresses concern about the sharp decline in population, which has been proportionally greatest amongst those under 25;

5.  Invites the Commission to pay particular attention to the question of whether there is a case for trade defence measures against certain non-EU coal producers;

6.  Welcomes Spain’s decision to offer personalised services co-financed by the EGF to up to 125 young people not in employment, education or training (NEETs) under the age of 30; understands that this offer will include support to those interested in creating their own business;

7.  Notes that the training courses provided will include workshops on job-search techniques, training in personal and social skills, in information and communication technologies (ICT), and in foreign languages while vocational training will focus on either enhancing mining-related skills that may be relevant to other economic sectors or developing skills for sectors such as: tourism and hospitality in rural areas; environmental restoration of mining basins; reforestation and landscaping;

8.  Notes that the EGF co-funded personalised services for the redundant workers include: welcome and information sessions; occupational guidance and counselling; intensive job-search assistance; training; promotion of entrepreneurship; support for business start-up; and incentives;

9.  Welcomes the inclusion of contributions to the expenses for carers of dependent persons amongst the available incentives in view of the likely positive impact on gender balance; calls on the Commission to present detailed information on the use that is made of this possibility;

10.  Welcomes the consultations with stakeholders including trade unions, business associations, the regional agency for economic development, innovation, financing and business internationalization and a public foundation attached to the regional public employment service that took place at the regional level to draw up the co-ordinated package of personalised services;

11.  Notes that the incentives will be 19,53% of the overall package of personalised measures, well below 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;

12.  Notes that the Spanish authorities have provided assurances 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 will be complementary with actions funded by the Structural Funds;

13.  Welcomes Spain’s confirmation 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;

14.  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
