Transit and international transport are removed from the posting of workers directive (PWD) – Members of the European Parliament Committee on Transport (TRAN) voted on June 4th on three reports from the Mobility Package



Brussels, 5th June 2018

 

Transit and international transport are removed from the posting of workers directive (PWD) – Members of the European Parliament Committee on Transport (TRAN) voted on June 4th on three reports from the Mobility Package


Subject to the of the vote of the Transport Committee (TRAN) were three reports by MEPs Wim Van de Camp, Merja Kyllönen and Ismail Ertug regarding the market and social aspects of the Mobility Package – drivers’ working time, transport posting, and market access.

For Polish carriers, the most important part of the vote was the compromise amendment 6 on the exclusion of international transport operations from the PWD. A compromise on cabotage which extends the duration of cabotage operations from 5 days (proposed by the European Commission) to 7 days was also adopted.

The TRAN Committee adopted the report excluding international transport and transit by a 27 to 21 vote during yesterday’s session.

“The result of voting in the TRAN Committee is good news for the transport industry from all member states of the European Union, and a balanced compromise taking into account the needs of both drivers and carriers as well as organisations supervising them,” comments Agata Boutanos from the Brussels office of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers ZPP.

In the next steps, we should prepare ourselves for the plenary vote in the European Parliament, as well as come to an agreement within the Trilogues as soon as there is an unequivocal position from the EU Council.

Yesterday’s favourable vote in TRAN will help avoid the adoption of the revision of the posting of workers directive voted on last week in transport. The implementation of the posting of workers directive in relation to transport would translate into unprecedented and unjustified administrative burdens for carriers and the entire logistics industry. The result thereof would paradoxically not lead to improved employment conditions for employees, but to closing down of micro, as well as small and medium-sized enterprises, which would not be able to meet administrative requirements. The transport prices of all goods throughout Europe would also increase significantly.

Position of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers on the draft act on the labour market of 29th June 2018

The Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers has repeatedly highlighted the necessity to introduce far-reaching changes in the rules and regulations of employing foreigners in Poland. This need stems from at least two factors – the first being the current deficit of people of working age which presents an undesirable situation for entrepreneurs, i.e. lack of hands to work. The shortage of qualified employees at the moment is one of the major obstacles to the development of companies – including those from the SME sector.
