EU sources -Protest against social dumping -January 24, 2013

On 23 January, several thousand European workers from the building, transport and agri-food industries expressed their outrage at the economic exploitation and social dumping affecting numerous foreign workers at the workplace. The protest was organised by ETUC affiliates in the construction (EFBWW), transport (ETF) and agricultural sectors (EFFAT). The participants urged the European policymakers to recognise the problems and take decisive action to tackle these. To ensure better monitoring of the European labour market, the trade unions are calling for a social Europol, a European social identity card, European liability for clients and principal contractors, clear definitions that distinguish between genuine self-employed people and employees, and stringent national controls with clear aims.
