ROUNDUP: breakthrough for new EU rules against social dumping |

Monday, October 23rd, 2017 | bitcoin updates

LUXEMBOURG (dpa-AFX) – In the future, posted workers from another EU country are to be paid in the same way as local colleagues. This is part of a reform of the Posting of Workers' Guidelines, which was agreed by the EU's social ministers in Luxembourg on Monday evening. The breakthrough was announced by EU social commissioner Marianne Thyssen on Twitter. The aim is to protect employees better from wage and social dumping. For this reason, postdates should not last longer than twelve months, in exceptional cases 18 months, as became known from negotiating circles. The transport industry will initially be excluded from the new rules. The limitation and the exceptions for truck drivers have been controversial until recently. The ministers of social affairs once more negotiated the whole day. The reform proposed by the EU Commission in 2016 had been discussed for more than one and a half years. The 1996 Posting Directive lays down the use of cross-border workers in other EU countries. Already minimum standards are required for these employees, for example the payment of the applicable minimum wage. Trade unionists, however, complain of loophole and abuse. Foreign workers were exploited and local social standards thus eroded. According to the EU Commission, posted workers currently earn only half as much as domestic workers. The reform is intended to change this. Millions of workers are affected across Europe. In Germany, around 561,000 employees from Italy, Spain or the eastern EU countries were active in 2016 according to trade union regulations, most of them working according to the rules of the Posting of Workers Directive. However, the interests of the EU differ widely. France in particular insisted on stricter rules to protect domestic workers against wage dumping. The Eastern European countries criticized the fact that Western states wanted to foreclose their labor markets. In the end, not all countries participated in the compromise. They were adopted by a majority in the late Monday evening as negotiating circles were called. Before the debate on the Posting of Workers Directive, the EU countries were behind the so-called European Social Pillar. The declaration is to be signed on 17 November at an EU summit with Chancellor Angela Merkel and the other heads of state and government in Gothenburg. In three chapters and 20 points, it lists the social rights of Europeans, including education, equality, equal opportunities, employment assistance, fair wages and social benefits./vsr/DP/stb
