The Institute for Labour and Economy (iaw) leads the sub-project that examines the current events concerning the establishment of a European minimum wage as well as initiatives to support mobile workers (posted workers on the basis of the freedom to provide services), such as the cooperation project "fair mobility".
The EU commission recently put forward a proposal for a European minimum wage which is a fundamental step further in the advancement of the European Pillar of Social Rights:
„What we propose today is a framework for minimum wages, in full respect of national traditions and the freedom of social partners. Improving working and living conditions will not only protect our workers, but also employers that pay decent wages, and create the basis for a fair, inclusive and resilient recovery.”
(Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission)
In this context, we scrutinize interactions of associations in various industries with the aim to analyze existing coalitions, limitations or boundaries between national, regional and transnational actors.
