Mobility of workers

mobilityofworkers.jpg

In an increasingly integrated European Union, the number of employees working in another country than the one they originate from is growing. This development contributes to a faster European integration process and has in many cases positive effects for the employees concerned as well as for the European societies and economies.

However, there is the risk that workers posted temporarily in another EU Member State are exploited and paid lower salaries than workers from the host country, even though they do the same work. There is a risk that this results in wage and social dumping. To ensure that workers are protected and treated equally, the PES is working towards a substantive revision of the Posting of Workers Directive. Furthermore, to strengthen protection of migrant and non-migrant workers, we demand to reinforce trade unions’ rights and social dialogue.
