Mobilisation of the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund: application EGF/2021/001 ES/País Vasco metal – Spain (A9-0319/2021 - Eider Gardiazabal Rubial)

25-11-2021
Written explanations of vote

In June 2021, an application for a financial contribution from the EGF was submitted, following 491 displacements in the economic sector classified under the NACE Revision 2 division 25 (Manufacture of fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment) in the NUTS 2 region of País Vasco (ES21) in the Basque Country. Following its assessment of this application, the Commission has concluded, in accordance with all applicable provisions of the EGF Regulation, that the conditions for awarding a financial contribution from the EGF have been met, and therefore I voted in favour of this report.

Legal migration policy and law (A9-0314/2021 - Abir Al-Sahlani)

25-11-2021
Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of this forward looking report that calls for legislation for (among other things): the creation of admission schemes for all skilled third-country workers, regardless of their skills; the establishment of an EU talent pool for legally migrating third-country nationals; the establishment of a EU-wide transnational advisory service network for legally migrating workers; and an admittance scheme for entrepreneurs and self-employed persons. I particularly welcome the calls for close cooperation with various actors including civil society and social partners.
