Warsaw, 16th June 2020


Two representatives of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers among the proposed candidates for the European Economic and Social Committee

The Ministry of Family, Labour and Social Policy informed that Marcin Nowacki and Tomasz Wróblewski, representatives of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers, were nominated to the Secretariat of the EU Council as candidates for members of the European Economic and Social Committee for the 2020-2025 term.

For the first time, the government did not bow to the dictates of the post-communist majority on the side of employers at the Social Dialogue Committee. Apart from the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers, the post-communist organisations indicated 7 of their candidates out of the 7 seats in the EESC as agreed by the “majority”. The Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers nominated two of its candidates separately, Tomasz Wróblewski and Marcin Nowacki.

In the course of the selection procedure of candidates for members of the European Economic and Social Committee for the 2020-2025 term, the government selected two candidates from the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers and five from the post-communist majority. Among the rejected candidates, there was Mr. Andrzej Malinowski, President of Employers of the Republic of Poland. In January 2020, in the Do Rzeczy weekly, an article about the cooperation of Andrzej Malinowski, President of the Employers of Poland, with the military intelligence of the People’s Republic of Poland. The weekly paper also published scans of the commitment to cooperate, including some bearing Malinowski’s signature, and other documents signed or prepared by him.

Since September 2017, the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers has been actively running its Representation to the European Union. The office in Brussels focuses on representing the interests of Polish enterprises. It deals with general matters relating to all companies and works with the industries represented in the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers. The Delegation is responsible for maintaining a permanent relationship with the most important EU institutions and economic stakeholders. One of the key areas of the international activity of the Union is also integration and undertaking joint activity with other employers’ organisations from the region of Central and Eastern Europe.

Marcin Nowacki and Tomasz Wróblewski will constitute a proper and worthy representation of the Republic of Poland on the international arena in the European Economic and Social Committee.

The full list of candidates for members of the European Economic and Social Committee for the 2020-2025 term is as follows:
