ALTER-EU urges MEPs to demand real change in Commission's expert groups

ALTER-EU, together with the Austrian Federal Chamber of Labour (AK), the Austrian Trade Union Federation (ÖGB) and the European Public Services Union (EPSU) today sent a letter to MEPs in the Budget committee urging them to vote against a new demand from the Commission to lift the reserve on 20% of the budget for expert groups on Thursday 6 September.

The organisations believe MEPs should use the momentum they have created to push for fairer composition and greater transparency in the Commission's expert groups.
