Member of German Parliament (Bundestag) Detlef Seif visited the Secretariat of the European Centre for Workers' Questions (EZA) in Königswinter in November 2018. Herbert Metzger, Vice President of EZA, and EZA Secretary General Sigrid Schraml informed the member of the Bundestag about the work of EZA and the 73-member organizations in Europe.

Detlef Seif, the chairman of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group in the Bundestag Committee on European Union Affairs, was very interested in the work of EZA. Seif was impressed by the extensive educational offer. Each year around 65 international seminars are held on topics relating to the world of work and social protection. In addition to the contents, experiences with the cooperation of the different member organizations were discussed.

In view of the challenges in Europe, it was agreed that contacts with Members of the European Affairs Committee and the working and social labour group of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group in the German Bundestag should be intensified.

During his visit Detlef Seif also informed about the progress of the Brexit negotiations. He was concerned that a disorderly exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union could occur. This would have very negative consequences for both sides, up to the endangerment of companies and thus the endangerment of jobs.
