New term of office for the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) to represent the EU Civil Society, Employers, Workers and NGOs.

On 27 October 2020 is starting the new term of office for the years 2020-2025 of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC).

he European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is a consultative body of the European Union composed of social partners: employers (employers’ organisations), employees (trade unions) and representatives of various other interests.

CESI’s President Romain Wolff, on the occasion of his appointment as a Member of the EESC, has declared:

“There is a lot of issues to improve in our Union and I’m very pleased to bring the voices and opinions of the public sector employees in this EU consultative body. Now, more then ever, we need to work on solidarity and find the right solutions for the workers in Europe facing incredible challenges coming from the Covid19 pandemic”.

The EESC is having two complementary missions:

– Involving civil society organisations more in the European venture, at both national and European level,

– Boosting the role of civil society organisations in non-member countries or country groupings where the committee is furthering structured dialogue with civil society organisations, and promoting the creation of consultative structures based on its experiences, not least in the countries applying for EU membership.
