Luxembourg -Support for transfrontier workers -April 17, 2012

The German DGB and the OGB-L will enter into a new and very practical cooperation as the organisations have decided to start with an information office on working conditions and social security for German workers that commute to Luxembourg (estimated 38,000 daily or weekly). As announced in the OGB-L quarterly (page 31) DGB members can ask for advice in the city of Trier (next to existing facilities in Saarlouis and Bitburg) from 5 April. For French commuters a series of meetings is organised (on 25 April, 10 and 24 May) that is completely dedicated to the changes of the pension system in Luxembourg and the consequences for transfrontier workers from France (OGB-L quarterly, page 32). The trade union LCGB-SESM will open new advisory facilities on working conditions for commuters to Germany as from 1 May in Merzig in cooperation with the German Pension Association (DRV Bund)
