A hearing was held on 14 March by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) on the Social Progress Protocol (SPP), which would prioritize fundamental rights over economic freedoms in conflict and in EU policies. SPPs were discussed as equal to the Treaties to safeguard and strengthen the European social model.

The SPP aims to safeguard basic social rights and ensure that the EU and Member States constantly strive to improve people’s working and living conditions. Additionally, it seeks to ensure the autonomy of social partners by regulating employment relations, promoting the highest standards of social rights whether derived from national, European, or international law and protecting all existing rights.

At the June plenary session, the EESC will vote on its opinion on the SPP.
