Spain -Dockers launch resistance against liberalisation of port recruitment practices -July 05, 2013

Trade unions have come together to design a common strategy against an upcoming liberalisation in the ports, which would allow de facto social dumping. The European Commission’s directorate general for mobility and transport has recently challenged the practice that port workers can be hired only through a private company owned by the employers in the port. Arguing the practice constitutes an impediment to the freedom of establishment, the European Commission has taken the case to the European Court of Justice.
