AGE gains Swiss support in favour of EU directive on carer leave

SSR-CSA_logoThe Swiss Council of older people, SSR-CSA, member of our European member organisation EURAG, has followed the example of AGE Spanish organisation CEOMA (read our previous article), in sending a letter to their national government to support the adoption of the European directive on carers’ leave.

This initiative responds to AGE call for national support in favour of the EU directive, which is currently under discussion at EU level.

Although Switzerland is not part of the European Union, the two partners are very close in many areas and SSR-CSA believes Switzerland can be positively affected by the EU initiative.
