The main countries sending and/or receiving posted workers are: Germany, France, Belgium, Italy. In parallel with the agricultural sector, to measure developments in other sectors (building sector, in particular)
- To present the legal basis of the initial directive and its recent development (October 2017), an instrument that allows mobility, limiting the risks of social dumping.
- To develop a quantitative and qualitative diagnosis of the situation of posted workers, including self-employed workers (the so-called “bogus self-employed workers”) – this theme allows the issue of illegal work to be addressed in part.
- To recall recruitment conditions, working conditions and pay.
- To recall social protection rules (contributions, benefits), and information tools.
- To provide arguments to employers’ and trade union organisations to avoid social dumping.
- To identify good practices in different sectors (agriculture, construction).
- To create an interactive site containing all the data and also pages consenting questions and exchanges.
- Use of social networks created during previous projects (expand content).
- To educate and develop monitoring strategies and good behaviour among trade unions and employers’ organisations in different countries and sectors (e.g. right to training).
- To allow cross-sectoral consultation on the issue of posted workers, in order to lead to a permanent evaluation aimed at identifying abuses. On this point, the new European Labour Authority has a topical role, which we can help to define.
All these objectives must be presented differently so as not to show too much diversity, which could hinder the financing agreement.O
