Posting of workers - EU Construction SMEs write to Commissioner Thyssen

Today EBC sent an open letter to Commissioner THYSSEN on the issue of POSTING OF WORKERS. As the representative organisation of construction SMEs taking part in the European sectoral social dialogue, EBC calls for the targeted review of the 96/71/EC Directive on Posting of Workers with clear proposals listed in the open letter. In EBC's opinion, this review should lead to a revision of the 1996 directive.
