EU Proposal on Guest Workers’ Rights

Published fredag 24 oktober 2008 kl 16.16
Jan Andersson

The Swedish parliament has passed a new resolution that may mean that workers stationed abroad will have the same legal and workers rights as those in the host country.

This comes after European Court judgements in the so-called ”Laval case”, where Latvian-based building company Laval operated in Sweden, with its Latvian workers working under their home employment laws, and the company not signing Swedish collective agreements which offered more protection.

Swedish unions protested against the policy and picketed the workplace, something the European Court later ruled as unlawful. But the resolution, proposed by Swedish MEP Jan Andersson, calls on the European Commission to implement the so-called ”Posting of workers directive”, which allows public authorities and Unions to lay down terms and conditions of employment which are more favourable to workers, according to the different traditions in the Member States.
