On 13 June the EU decided that Bratislava will host the seat of the European Labour Authority, whose aim is to ensure that Union rules on labour mobility are enforced in a fair, simple and effective way. Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, Marianne Thyssen welcomed the decision and congratulated the government of Slovakia for being chosen to host its seat. The other candidates were Bulgaria, Cyprus and Latvia.
The idea of a European Labour Authority was first announced by President Juncker in 2017. After all necessary procedures, the Council formally adopted on 13 June the Regulation establishing the European Labour Authority, which will enter into force after its signature and publication, and will operate at full capacity by 2024.
