In order to discuss the consequences of the Nidec case, AK Steiermark President Josef Pesserl met with Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager on May 2nd 2019. Only a few weeks before, 400 jobs had been in danger in the Austrian region of Styria, following the initiated merger control proceedings of the Commission. However, thanks to its expertise and commitment, Chamber of Labour has been able to contribute to the matter. The Nidec case also shows a deeper need for reforming EU competition law.
