EU sources -Equal treatment for posted workers -December 12, 2013

The European trade union movement protested against ‘social dumping’ and unfair competition during the meeting of the EU employment ministers, a meeting with on the agenda how to enforce the application of the posting rules. Improvement of the legal position of so-called posted workers is a long-time demand from the union side. Posted workers often work for lower wages and working conditions and the existing rules are often not respected. The unions call for the regulation of outsourcing and want to hold accountable the entire supply chain.
