Dear Secretariat General of the European Commission,

President von der Leyen committed in her Political Guidelines to introduce binding pay transparency measures.

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

- minutes and other reports of meetings between the European Commission (President von der Leyen, Commissioners, cabinet members, Commission staff, etc.) and representatives of industry stakeholders (including BUSINESSEUROPE, SMEunited, CEEP, BDI, BDA and others) where the issue of pay transparency was mentioned, between December 2019 and today. In the light of the lockdown and other corona-related restrictions, physical meetings are unlikely to have happened since mid-March. Please also include minutes and other reports of zoom meetings, phone calls and other exchanges during which the issue of pay transparency was mentioned.

- all correspondence (including emails) between the European Commission (President von der Leyen, Commissioners, cabinet members, Commission staff, etc.) and representatives of industry stakeholders (including BUSINESSEUROPE, SMEunited, CEEP, BDI, BDA and others) in which the issue of pay transparency was mentioned, between December 2019 and today.

Yours faithfully,

Olivier Hoedeman

informed in due course.
You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which
has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore, the
European Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or
problems linked to the use of this system.
Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is
published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can
provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further
correspondence.  In that case, the Commission will send all future
electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address,
and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You
should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website
about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply
from, the Commission.
