Throughout the spring the European Commission is conducting a public consultation for the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). EFFAT calls its members to participate actively in the consultation to point out that the needs of agricultural workers are until now not addressed in the CAP. Together we want to advocate for a social reform of the CAP. Hereunder you find our draft position on the matter.
We also asked Pietro Ruffolo, Secretary for European affairs at FLAI-CGIL in Italy, to share his experience on the CAP consultation and the way he’s ensuring broad response within his organization. Kindly find his interview hereunder.
