An update to the current Posted Workers Directive should have removed persisting barriers in the cross-border posting of workers and strengthened the workers´ rights. A text passed by the EP Employment and Social Affairs Committee (EMPL) is however a step towards more protectionism and, as a consequence, higher unemployment, says the ECR coordinator on EMPL Milan Cabrnoch.
Milan Cabrnoch said: “There are currently around 1 million workers posted to other Member States each year across the European Union. The ability of businesses to send their workers overseas to win and deliver contracts is central in making the Single Market work in Europe.”
“From the very beginning of the debate, the ECR was seeking a good balance between ensuring workers ‘ rights and cutting red tape. Unfortunately, there are some member states who still play the game of maximal employees´ rights at every cost. It is nothing else than a hidden protectionism and a way to deeper stagnation.”
