CECOP – CICOPA Europe has sent a letter to several high-level EU decision makers to raise their awareness with its European campaign on sustainable employment highlighting the fact that worker cooperatives, social cooperatives and other types of enterprises owned by their workers allow a more sustainable form of employment.
The letter has been addressed to EU Commissioners László Andor (Employment and Social Affairs), Antonio Tajani (Enterprises and Industry) and Michel Barnier (Internal Market), the MEPs of the Employment and Social Affairs Committee and several European Commission civil servants, and other key actors at the European level.
As stated in the letter, “By providing sustainable employment in economically sustainable enterprises geared towards the long term, we consider ourselves to be part of a wider socio-economic trend, which is trying to generate and distribute long-term wealth in the territories, going in the opposite direction of the tendencies which caused the crisis”.
