The Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for the Extractive Industries (SSDCEI) says “no” to any short-cut to a democratic debate on “backloading”. (i.e. postponing the auctioning of a certain number of allowances which should result in a higher carbon price in the short term). In the joint position signed by IMA-Europe, the SSDCEI insists that the European Parliament (EP) should have a discussion in plenary before starting negotiations with the Council on the basis of the report adopted in the EP’s Environment Committee.
