Yleiset säännöt ja periaatteet, joiden mukaisesti jäsenvaltiot valvovat komission täytäntöönpanovallan käyttöä (A9-0187/2020 - József Szájer) EN

17-12-2020

I have voted against the report on the rules and general principles concerning mechanisms for control by Member States of the Commission’s exercise of implementing powers because I am not in agreement with some elements of this report and have my reservations. One of them are the changes to the voting rules for the appeal committee, which would remove/negate the right to abstain and would depart from the procedure provided in the treaties. Moreover, further referral to the appeal committee at Ministerial level should be up to each delegation in order to decide who will represent them in Committee meetings, at the appropriate level.

I have voted in favour of the objection of the draft Commission implementing decision with regard to genetically modified soybean, which is not consistent with EU law and is not compatible with the aim of Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003, which, in accordance with the general principles laid down in Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council, provides the basis for ensuring a high level of protection of human life and health, animal health and welfare, and environmental and consumer interests, in relation to GM food and feed, while ensuring the effective functioning of the internal market. Therefore, the resolution calls on the Commission to withdraw its draft implementing decision.

I have voted in favour of the objection of the draft Commission implementing decision, which states that the cultivation of herbicide-tolerant GM crops results in a higher use of herbicides, which is not consistent with EU law and is not compatible with the aim of Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003, which is, in accordance with the general principles laid down in Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council provides the basis for ensuring a high level of protection of human life and health, animal health and welfare, and environmental and consumer interests, in relation to GM food and feed, while ensuring the effective functioning of the internal market.

Eurooppalainen kansalaisaloite – Minority SafePack (B9-0403/2020, B9-0405/2020) EN

17-12-2020

I have voted in favour of the resolution on the ECI Minority Safepack, which is a set of nine proposals aimed at improving the protection of persons belonging to national and language minorities and reinforcing the cultural and language diversity in the European Union. Moreover, this initiative was signed by more than 1.2 million Europeans. The European Citizens Initiative is a tool allowing EU Citizens to participate in shaping EU policy. Put in place by the Lisbon Treaty, the citizens’ initiative allows 1 million citizens from at least a quarter of the EU Member States to ask the European Commission to propose legislation in areas that fall within its competence.

Vahva sosiaalinen Eurooppa oikeudenmukaisten siirtymien toteuttamiseksi (A9-0233/2020 - Dennis Radtke, Agnes Jongerius) EN

17-12-2020

This report presents an ambitious political agenda putting social objectives as the same level as environmental and economic ones: giving them enforceability, adopting identifiable, clear targets and indicators of social sustainability, reforming the governance framework and dedicating sufficient financial support and investments. The Covid-19 pandemic threatens to unleash a social emergency with people losing their livelihoods, workers facing more precarious working conditions, increasing inequalities, families falling into poverty. We need to step up with the green transition, and be prepared for digitalisation, but this can only be done in a just way, embedded in social investment in people. Europe's recovery and the future of the EU will be dependent on progress in building a strong Social Europe. With some reservations, I did voted in favour of the report, because more than ever we need to be ambitious in the path towards social justice, decent work, equal opportunities, fair mobility and robust social welfare systems.

Yritysten kestävä hallinnointi (A9-0240/2020 - Pascal Durand) EN

17-12-2020

I supported the report, which is calling on the European Commission to come forward with rules that make sure companies put long-term business and societal interests ahead of the short-term profits. The European Parliament should take a strong position on making sure the way companies are run is both sustainable and responsible. Reporting from companies should be more transparent and we need to have a clear global picture of how businesses are run.

Neuvoston suositus kestävää kilpailukykyä, sosiaalista oikeudenmukaisuutta ja selviytymiskykyä tukevasta ammatillisesta koulutuksesta (B9-0400/2020) EN

The update of EU VET strategy is very important in ensuring the implementation of the 1st principle of the European Pillar of Social Rights, the right to quality and inclusive education, training and life-long learning. The
Council Recommendation on VET puts forward actions at the EU level to support vocational education and training reform with clear quantitative objectives and by defining strategies for the future. This proposal is
also crucial for the improvement of competences, working conditions, as well as career and wage progression of workers. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased social inequalities and has had a damaging effect on VET students,
learners, teachers and trainers, on companies and apprentices, and on the workers. Millions of workers lost their jobs and will also need reskilling and upskilling in the labour market. The report seeks to ensure that the upcoming strategy on VET equips all workers with the skills to support the recovery period ahead, as well as the green and digital transitions and that is why I fully supported it.
