The Parliament is set to tackle topics on work-life balance for parents and carers, boosting defences against cyber threats, cracking down on sexual harassment, setting up a digital gateway and tackling varying quality and composition of products between countries in the Single Market.
Members want to improve work-life balance for parents and carers. They would get more paid leave and could request flexible working arrangements. Crucial systems like banking, electricity grids and airport control are at risk of cyber attack. Parliament wants to give the EU Agency for Network Information Security a permanent mandate to fight against cyber threats. Across the Single Market, the quality and composition of packaged products from fish fingers to detergent can be different, even when they have the same branding. The Parliament plans to tackle the issue. Parliament wants to allow EU citizens to access information and carry out administrative tasks, like registering a car or applying for a study loan, all in one place. Members call for measures to end sexual harassment and gender-based violence at work, in public spaces and across political life in the EU.
