Amendments to Parliament’s Rules of Procedure concerning the training on preventing conflict and harassment in the workplace and on good office management (A9-0163/2024 - Gabriele Bischoff)

24-04-2024
Written explanations of vote

I was happy to vote in favour of amendments to Parliament’s Rules of Procedure concerning the training on preventing conflict and harassment in the workplace. This training will now be mandatory for every MEP. If an MEP does not partake in the training within the first six months of their mandate, they may not be elected as office holders of Parliament. I fully support these changes; everyone should be able to come to work and expect a sense of safety and respect. As MEPs, it is our responsibility to ensure a safe environment, where everyone is well versed on the impact of workplace harassment.

Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence (A9-0184/2023 - Lara Wolters)

24-04-2024
Written explanations of vote

After long negotiations, I am delighted that we could pass this historic vote on the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD). For the first time, in accordance with UN guiding principles, it will now be mandatory for businesses operating in the EU to adhere to environmental and human rights due diligence in their value chains. This directive is a huge step forward in combating modern slavery and the millions of people that are affected by it every day. The CSDDD also fosters engagement from companies in the fight against climate change.

European Disability Card and European Parking Card for persons with disabilities (A9-0003/2024 - Lucia Ďuriš Nicholsonová)

24-04-2024
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of establishing the European Disability Card and the European Parking Card for persons with disabilities. We welcome the introduction of these cards as a step forward in combatting discrimination, and in ensuring people with disabilities in the EU are able to exercise their right to freedom of movement. It is also positive that the scope will extend to Third Country Nationals resident in a Member State.
