Posting of Workers - ‘Protecting Mobility through Improving Labour Rights Enforcement in Europe’ CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

Posting of Workers - ‘Protecting Mobility through Improving Labour Rights Enforcement in Europe’ CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

At the beginning of March, the three EU institutions (Council, Parliament and Commission) reached a deal on the ongoing Review of the Posted Workers Directive with elements such as:

  • Introducing the concept of "pay" rather than "minimum wage rates", whereby posted workers can also benefit from certain supplements and per diem allowances, classification rules and special payments;
  • entitlement to allowances for travel, accommodation and subsistence costs incurred as a result of the posting;
  • right to adequate accommodation that SOLIDAR considers a positive development for a more social Europe.

On Wednesday, 25 April, the EMPL committee voted on the outcome of the inter-institutional agreement of early March. The agreement has been adopted with 38 votes in favour (14 against, 2 abstentions). Before entering into force, the draft directive will need to be formally approved by the full Parliament and the Council.

In the framework of the EaSI-funded project ‘Protecting Mobility through Improving Labour Rights Enforcement in Europe’, that aims to enhance administrative cooperation and information sharing between relevant stakeholders engaged with the posting of workers, a conference will be organised on 14 and 15 June in Padova.
