German Trade Union Confederation's demands at the European level


Demands DGB

In order to bring about a long-term and sustainable change in the employment of mobile workers in Europe, the Confederation of German Trade Unions (DGB) and its member unions propose the introduction of Euro-pean measures to accompany national activities. These should include problem-oriented solutions that should not be restricted to specific groups of workers or specific sectors. Crosscutting measures must be intro-duced which cover all mobile workers. Priority must be given to accommodation conditions, social security cover, placement activities, the unclear status of workers and employers as well as cross-border enforcement and controls.
