Consensus on Posting of Workers Directive

The four negotiators of the Council, Parliament and Commission announced on March 1 that they achieved a consensus on the proposal to amend the Posting of Workers Directive and negotiated a balanced package agreement that respects the main concerns put forward by the institutions.

 

The possible agreement on the proposal establishes the principle of equal pay for equal work on the same place, whilst providing more legal certainty for both workers and employers. The aim is to not only create fairness for the posted workers but also to prevent the undercutting of wages for local workers.

 

The revision of the directive will support fairer and better functioning labour market in Europe which is a key principle of the European Pillar of Social Rights.

 

Now the rapporteurs of the Parliament and the Deputy Minister for Labour and Social Policy of Bulgaria have to present the results of this agreement within their respective institutions to get the mandate needed to conclude negotiations and adopt a final proposal.
