European Parliament, Brussels

On 25 March 2010 the EPP WOMEN organized a Colloque in the European Parliament in which Viviane REDING, Vice-President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Justice Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, and Androulla VASSILIOU (MEC), Commissioner for Education, Culture and Youth took part as key-note speakers.

During the meeting the EPP WOMEN adopted a standpoint on MATERNITY LEAVE, as a result of a discussion on the initiative of the European Commission to revise the EC Directive of 1992 and the standpoint of the FEMM Commission of the European Parliament on this. The Directive of 1992 deals with measures to improve the security and the health of pregnant female employees, and of female employees who have recently given birth, and employees who breastfeed their babies in the workplace.
