Netherlands -Labour migration and social dumping -September 09, 2013

The ministry of Social Affairs and Employment is setting up a research project to look at claims that people are being squeezed out of jobs by cheaper workers from eastern Europe. At the same time, the ministry is pressing ahead with controversial plans to force EU ‘labour migrants’ to sign ‘participation contracts’ pledging to obey the existing laws when they arrive. The ministry also made agreements with supermarkets and the agricultural sector to ensure workers are not exploited. This means making sure they are paid in line with sector-wide collective agreements, do not work longer than allowed by law and are not employed via dummy jobs agencies.
