This includes but is not limited to those working in the health care and food sectors, and other essential services like childcare, elderly care, and critical staff for utilities.
The Commission presented a Communication on building a strong social Europe for just transitions. It sets out how social policy will help deliver on the challenges and opportunities of today, proposing action at EU level for the months to come, and seeking feedback on further action at all levels in the area of employment and social rights.
The gοvernment aims to form a just and sustainable social security system without further pension cuts, Labour Minister George Katrougalos said during his meeting with the president of EU Labour Ministers Council Nicolas Schmit on Tuesday.
He stressed that it is not only a national guideline but a national need.
