On 8 December 2022, ministers of the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council were able to make progress regarding important issues concerning the European Pillar of Social Rights – for example in the fight against asbestos at the workplace or in respect of long-term care.

But there was positive news regarding this issue from the EU Parliament, where the Employment Committee adopted its report on 12 December 2022.
