ETUC concerned about the Commission's inaction on the protection of fundamental social rights

Brussels, 22/01/2009

Said John Monks: ‘I am very concerned about this communication. ETUC is ready to discuss issues of labour mobility, including legal aspects with the social partners, but has insisted that this is not an excuse for inaction by the Commission. If the Commission thinks that they can wash their hands of the issue they are completely wrong. It is urgent and today I call on them to think again. ETUC regards this issue as a central test for this and a future Commission.’
