EFBWW approves resolution to call for actions for a fair and efficient internal market

On the last day of the 14th EFBWW General Assembly, the participants approved a resolution on internal market, to mark its 30th anniversary. Considering that there is not much to celebrate in this anniversary, the EFBWW will work and call for a reform of the EU Internal Market.

In this context, the EFBWW will advocate for a re-balanced approach that prioritises social rights on par with economic rights, ensuring the welfare of every construction worker in the EU. Amongst other measures, the EFBWW calls for a complete ban on intermediaries in construction, explore the introduction of a directive addressing subcontracting, and the introduction of strict limits to subcontracting, better enforcement rules in terms of social ID-cards, Inspection Services, European Labour Authority and Europol and sanctions. The resolution also aims to fight for better rules on public procurement and for migration and fair mobility.
