PM Beata Szydło, during her trip to Bulgaria, said that she hopes that a compromise regarding posted workers issue will be reached soon. “Poland has an active and constructive dialogue with the other countries and we are hoping that we will find a compromise,” she said.
The issue is one of the key policy of French President Emmanuel Macron, who calls it “social dumping” and “unfair competition from the CEE states.” It mostly concerns workers from the CEE region, where wages are significantly lower than in the rest of Europe. According to the current regulations, they can, for a limited time, work for their local wages, while posted in the Western European countries.
Poland and Hungary are the biggest proponents of the current regulations.
