Today a vast number of European and national organisations have sent an open letter to key Commissioners, EU Parliament negotiating MEPs, and national agriculture ministers to ensure that social conditionality* is part of the final agreement on the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform. In the coming days the trilogue negotiations on the CAP reform are taking place and there is pressure to not include social conditionality in the final agreement. Social conditionality is a long-standing political demand of ECVC and this why ECVC is among the co-signatories of this letter. You can find the letter here.

 

*CAP direct payments should be conditional on respect for the applicable working and employment conditions in national and EU law as well as ILO conventions.
