Commenting on the agreement reached yesterday by the Council regarding the proposal on implementing the directive on the posting of workers, Danuta Jazłowiecka MEP, responsible for the file on posting of workers in the European Parliament's Employment Committee, said:

"The general approach adopted yesterday by Member States seems to be a good compromise. I hope this will finally stop conflicts and put an end to the negative atmosphere which emerged with regards to the posting of workers. Mobility is a very important tool in fighting the crisis and posting is one of the safest ways of working abroad."

"Next week, we will start negotiations with the Council. I very much wish that we manage to work out a good text by the end of the current EP legislature, before the European elections. There is a huge time pressure, but if everybody is determined and convinced that improved enforcement is a must, there is a real chance to finalise negotiations. This would be good news for workers as well as for entrepreneurs.”
