This morning the Committee debated and adopted a potentially controversial opinion (rapporteur: Thomas Janson, Group II, Sweden – to the right in the picture) on the posting of workers. In an excellent demonstration of the Committee’s consensus-building tradition at work, the opinion was adopted by a very large majority (219 votes in favour, 8 against). Although generally supportive of the Commission’s proposal, the opinion poses some questions and lays down some conditions for the success of the proposal, particularly in such areas as equal minimum conditions of employment and provisions on joint and several liability.
