4. PROTECTING WORKERS' RIGHTS ACROSS THE BOARD
Next week, Labour's NEC will be sitting down to decide what to include in the manifesto for the upcoming European Elections. In consultation with Labour members and supporters, we have come up with a series of issues that we believe Labour should commit to in the EU Elections Manifesto.

4. PROTECTING WORKERS' RIGHTS ACROSS THE BLOCK
From ensuring that British workers have access to breaks and paid holidays, to ensuring equal pay for workers no matter their gender, the EU has done a lot to protect and improve workers rights in the UK and across the continent.
The rise of the right across Europe represents a direct and dangerous threat to workers' rights, and Labour, working with the party of European Socialists, has a crucial role to play in protecting our current rights that are enshrined in EU law, and pushing for better, more progressive ones.
We should be exploring and idenitifying the issues that workers face across Europe in 2019. From legislating for the living wage to strengthening the role that Trade Unions can play in our workplaces, the European Parliament can change the lives of workers across the EU for the better.
Labour must commit to protecting the rights that workers already have, and looking for new ways to improve workers' rights in its manifesto for the European Elections.
