Verts/ALE:
§ 5
First part‘Recalls that the PDCA includes a provision for the suspension of the agreement that should be applied in the event of a violation of the provisions on human rights; insists therefore that the European Union closely follow and monitor respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms in Cuba when implementing the PDCA and that there are regular reports back to Parliament;’
Second part‘invites VP/HR Federica Mogherini to inform Parliament in detail in plenary about the concrete steps being taken with the aim of meeting the above-mentioned requirement;’
Recital C
First part‘whereas the human rights dialogue between the EU and Cuba, led by the EU Special Representative for Human Rights, began in 2015; whereas on 9 October 2018 the parties in the fourth EU-Cuba human rights dialogue addressed, among other matters, the topic of citizens’ participation in public affairs, including in the context of recent electoral processes, as well as freedom of association and expression and the possibility for human rights defenders and other sectors of civil society to freely associate, express their views and participate in public life;’
Second part‘whereas it is unclear to Parliament if this meeting was in any respect conclusive; whereas no tangible results have been achieved as concerns human rights in Cuba, despite the setting up of the Human Rights Dialogue and Cuba’s re-election to the UN Human Rights Council for the period 2017-2019; whereas the political dialogue must include direct and intensive dialogue with civil society and the opposition without any restrictions;’

Amendment 8
First part‘Since public awareness of the hazards that POPs pose to the health of present and future generations as well as to the environment, particularly in developing countries, is often lacking, wide-scale information is needed to increase the level of caution and public understanding of the rationale for restrictions and bans. In accordance with the Convention, public awareness programmes on those substances as regards their health and environmental effects, especially for the most vulnerable groups, as well as training of workers, scientists, educators, technical and managerial personnel should be promoted and facilitated, as appropriate.’
Second part‘The Union should ensure access to information and public participation, implementing the UN/ECE Convention on access to information, public participation in decision-making and access to justice in environmental matters (Aarhus Convention), which was approved by the Union on 17 February 2005.’

§ 16
First part‘Notes that there are a variety of care services, including early childhood care and education, care services for older persons and care or support for persons with disabilities and/or chronic diseases who have a long-lasting health and care need, and notes that differing policy approaches have been developed as a result;’

§ 19
First partText as a whole excluding the words: ‘for-profit’
Second partthose words
§ 24
First part‘Believes that accessibility derives from a combination of cost and flexibility and that there should therefore be a range of care service provisions, both public and private, and for care at home and in home-like settings;’
Second part‘considers, furthermore, that family members should either be able to voluntarily provide care or be subsidised to procure care services;’
ENF:
§ 34
First partText as a whole excluding the words: ‘and migrant workers’
Second partthose words
Recital G
First part‘whereas care-related jobs are poorly paid in many Member States, often do not offer formal contracts or other basic labour rights and are not professionally attractive, owing to a high risk of physical and emotional stress, the threat of burnout, and a lack of career development opportunities; whereas the sector offers few training opportunities, and its employees are predominantly ageing people, women’
Second part‘and migrant workers;’
Recital AE
First part‘whereas it has been reported that people from disadvantaged backgrounds are facing particular challenges when there is limited availability of high-quality care services, including those from low-income families, those living in rural areas,’
Second part‘and children with ethnic minority or migrant backgrounds;’
PPE:
§ 2
First part‘Notes that a quarter of all women are still unpaid contributing family workers, for which they receive no direct pay, and there is a clear segregation of women in sectors generally characterised by low pay, long hours and often informal working arrangements, which lead to fewer monetary, social and structural gains for women’
Second part‘than for the typical working man;’

Second part‘in addition to insufficient support and taxation systems that affect households headed by single mothers;’
Third part‘on the grounds of their gender identity, gender expression, and sex characteristics, among others, all’
§ 6
First part‘Welcomes the Commission’s proposal for a directive on work-life balance for workers and carers and emphasises, in this context, the importance of the individual rights of leave and flexible working arrangements for helping working individuals to manage their private and professional lives; recalls that policies on work-life balance should encourage men to take up care responsibilities on an equal basis with women;’
Second part‘believes that for the purposes of future development, the aim should be to progressively extend paternity and care leave and its level of payment, which should be adequate, to ensure non-transferable parental leave, guarantees in relation to dismissal, return on the same or equivalent post and protection from discrimination carried out on the basis of leave-taking decisions, and the extension of rights to self-employed workers and those who need to take adequately paid leave in order to care for dependents other than children;’

recital N
First partText as a whole excluding the word: ‘public’
Second partthis word
Recital O
First part‘whereas Europe is having to contend with demographic changes that are leading to a growing incidence of age-related diseases and an ageing population, and thus greater care needs;’
Second part‘whereas at a time of growing care demands, there is a disproportionate distribution of care responsibilities between genders, with women bearing the brunt of the burden on account of the stereotypical gender roles that still prevail in European society; whereas the growing number of elderly people, the fall in the number of working age people and austerity-driven budgetary restrictions are having a significant impact on social services, which will also have repercussions for people having to combine work and care responsibilities, often in challenging circumstances;’
Recital U
First part‘whereas the Barcelona targets of providing childcare to at least 33 % of children under three years of age (target 1) and to at least 90 % of children between the age of three and the mandatory school age (target 2) have been met in just 12 Member States since 2002, with achievement rates in some Member States worryingly low,’
Second part‘which can only be regarded as a failure by the EU to meet those targets;’
Recital AB
First part‘whereas long-term care services and childcare are oftentimes devalued and in many Member States this profession has a rather low profile and status, which is reflected by low wage levels, unequal representation of women and men in the labour force, poor working conditions’
Second part‘and the absence of formal employment contracts;’
ENF, PPE:
§ 17
First part‘Believes that the approach to the development of care services should take into account all categories of users and their differences and diverse preferences for the types of care services they require, including people from disadvantaged backgrounds,’
Second part‘such as ethnic minorities or migrant families,’
Third part‘and people living in remote and rural areas and low- income families;’
Fourth part‘recalls that the concept of the family used in legislation and policies should be understood in a broad sense;’
