Austria has been the holder of the Presidency since July 2018; in fact, more than half of her term has passed. During an event organised by the Brussels Offices of the Austrian Federal Chamber of Labour (AK EUROPA) and the Austrian Trade Union Federation (ÖGB Europabüro), as well as the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) on 22 October, the trade unionists called on the Aus-trian Presidency to prioritise social policy issues.
