Social Europe – Together Statement

To achieve high quality of life and ensure upward social convergence, we must:
Assure decent working conditions in all forms of employment, guaranteeing every worker access to a core set of labour and social rights, which follow the principle of equal pay for equal work.
Close the gender pay gap by assuring equal treatment and non-discrimination throughout our Union.
Establish a European Child Guarantee, which ensures that every child has access to free healthcare, free education, free childcare, decent housing and proper nutrition.
Ensure the respect and the promotion of collective bargaining so that it reaches as many workers as possible across our Union.
Assure the reconciliation of personal and work life.
All your comments and amendments to this statement will be taken into account and debated during our next TOGETHER event in Tallinn, Estonia. Join the discussion and have your say on the future of Europe!

Je suis d’accord avec l’idée qu’un ouvrier travail 4jrs et gagner le salair d’un 38h semaine.

Il me semble que le point de départ devrait être une mise en commun des normes sociales dans les 28/27 états membres

Demand a Social Progress Protocol to the EU treaties. The protocol should clearly state that economic freedoms on the internal market do not incorporate the prohibition of restrictions but instead provide for equal treatment. The protocol would clarify in EU primary law that neither economic freedoms on the internal market nor EU competition rules take precedence over fundamental social rights, including trade union and workers’ rights. In the event of conflict, fundamental social rights must have priority.

Equal rights for people with ADHD and Aspergers In this post I wish to bring up a very important subject and that is a subject belonging to the part of social europe, equal rights and fair treament! I am a Swedish high school teacher of 35years of age and a grass root, beloning to the Swedish Social Democratic Student Movement. I was diagnosed with ADHD and Asperger’s as an adult. Since I chose to be open about my diagnosis to reduce some prejduices and on other occations get some support from society I have been subjected to discrimination by among others: Swedish Social Security authorites, Some Swedish schools and even Swedish Counties! The discrimination of people with neuropshyciatric conditions like Asperger’s, ADHD, Tourette’s syndrome, Dyslexi and so on is a true modern human rights disaster. I would say that among western demoracies Sweden are definately not among the better ones to prevent to prevent this type of discriination. Among other examples the Swedish Transportations authorites willfully supended a train driver with Asperger’s syndrome and 24years of spotless service record. The Swedish State was later sued and the train driver was awarded damages in an anti discrimination lawsuit! Since that lawsuits Sweden has banned people who asperger’s syndrome and other neuropsychiatric conditions form alltogether! That why I on the 1st of may 2017 in the Swedish City of Borås, Sweden chose to carry a sign saying “Equal conditions despite Aspergers, ADHD!”. Shortly after the march I showed my dear fellow comrades the papers. Swedish Social Security authorities deny a disability equal to a 25% reducation of full time working ability. They mock me for having asperger’s and state that I should a find a job within my areas of interests, having little or no contact of people, where all days are predictable and free of stress! By this post I hope to inspire other young social democrats around in Europe to fight for rights of people with asperger’s and ADHD. I also hope to inspire other other grassroot politicians who have neuropsychatric conditions to be open about it and contiung to work on improving conditions for people with these conditions! Kind Regards Rikard Grossman-Nielsen
