European Sunday Alliance Releases Manifesto Ahead of EU Elections


March 3rd marked the annual European Day for a Work-free Sunday, and this year, the European Sunday Alliance is seizing the opportunity to unveil its manifesto for the upcoming EU elections.

As we observe the significance of synchronized resting time on this day, the European Sunday Alliance underscores its role as a potent tool in combating loneliness and promoting the mental well-being of workers.

With the EU elections scheduled for June 2024, the European Sunday Alliance urges Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) and election candidates to throw their support behind the Elections Manifesto crafted by its Steering Committee. This manifesto emphasizes the importance of establishing a weekly common day of rest, traditionally observed on Sundays, at the EU level for all citizens.

On this auspicious occasion, the European Sunday Alliance is heartened by the endorsement of a work-free Sunday by a coalition of MEPs from diverse political backgrounds. Among these supporters are notable figures such as Brando Benifei (S&D, Italy), Gabriele Bischoff (S&D, Germany), Katrin Langensiepen (Greens/EFA, Germany), Dragos Pislaru (Renew, Romania), Dennis Radtke (EPP, Germany), Evelyn Regner (S&D, Austria), Michaela Sojdrova (EPP, Czech Republic), and Tomas Zdechovsky (EPP, Czech Republic). Additionally, we extend our gratitude to Miriam Lexmann (EPP, Slovakia), a sponsor of the European Sunday Alliance, for her steadfast support.

As we move forward, let us collectively recognize the importance of a dedicated day of rest for all Europeans and work towards its realization at the European level.
