Social Policy

Social Affairs are an important facet of the European project and will undoubtedly continue to be prioritised in the new 2019-24 legislature following the 2019 European elections. With the introduction in 2017 of the European Pillar of Social Rights, many social policies - such as transparent and predictable working conditions and work-life balance, for example - have been prioritised, resulting in updated legislation in these areas. Progression in the social dimension is likely to continue in the upcoming years.

Intergraf works with the European Commission when potential legislation is considered. With our strong links to Commission DGs and officials, as well as our membership of cross-industry groups - such as those led by BusinessEurope - which meet regularly to discuss issues at stake, we ensure that concerns of the graphic industry are heard.

Intergraf's EU advocacy on social affairs covers the following topics:

  • Employment policy
  • Skills and qualifications
  • Recruitment
  • Health & Safety
  • Moving and working in Europe
  • Rights at work
  • Social protection and social inclusion
  • Involvement in related EU projects (e.g. SPRINT)
