The Cabinet Wednesday approved Bulgaria's position for participation in the Employment, Social Policy, Health, and Consumer Affairs Council meeting, which will be held on Thursday in Luxembourg, the Government Information Service said.

The Council will seek to agree its negotiating position on a proposed directive amending the existing rules on European Works Councils. The Ministers will also exchange views on a proposed directive prohibiting discrimination on the grounds of religion or belief, disability, age, or sexual orientation in areas other than employment.

The Council will hold a policy debate on the social dimension of the internal market, focusing on the contribution of employment and social policies to creating a sustainable single market for all. The participants in the meeting are expected to reach an agreement on documents on social convergence in the EU, the role of labour market, skills and social policies in building sustainable economies, the future of the European Pillar of Social Rights, and the integration of the long-term unemployed into the labour market. The European Commission will present the 2024 European Semester Spring Package.
