Free movement of EU workers
Social Agenda No 34 features the European Commission’s proposal to concretely help EU workers who want to move, or already have moved, within the European Single Market. Although the EU legislation on the freedom of movement of workers dates back to 1968, the right to equal treatment with the workers of the host country (i.e. non-discrimination on the grounds of nationality) is still not familiar to many, including among national and local civil servants.
This issue of Social Agenda also looks from an employment and social affairs angle at the EU budgetary framework leading up to 2020, the need for common European indicators to improve cohesion policy and the 2013 European Semester. And it explains why 'Social Europe' is one of the European Commission's most popular social media platforms.
