Strengthening the social dimension of the Economic and Monetary Union

European Commission László ANDOR European Commissioner responsible for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion Press conference/Brussels, 2 October 2013 
This Communication is a contribution from the Commission to the debate on the deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), and follows the Commission's Blueprint on a deep and genuine EMU, published in November 2012 (IP/12/1272). As set out in the Blueprint, coordination and surveillance of employment and social policies should be reinforced within the EMU, and convergence in these areas should be promoted.The communication responds to a call by the European Council in December 2012 to present possible measures on the social dimension of the EMU, including social dialogue. The June European Council recalled that the social dimension should be strengthened, notably by using appropriate employment and social indicators within the European Semester, pointed out the need to ensure better coordination of employment and social policies, while fully respecting national competences, and highlighted the role of the social partners and social dialogue, including at national level.
