Public service unions take European Commission to court for the first time seeking to enforce social dialogue
On 23 May the European Federation of Public Service Unions (EPSU) will be before the General Court of the European Union bringing a claim against the European Commission for breaching rules on social dialogue (TFEU article 155.2).
The EU-Member States governments carved up the top jobs in the European Union. A narrow majority in the European Parliament agreed with their pick for EU Commission President, the German defense minister Ursula von der Leyen.
The European Council met on Thursday 20 June bringing together the government leaders. Most attention was focused on the game of musical chairs to decide who got the top jobs. However, they also discussed the strategic agenda 2019-2024.
