Agriculture and social rights

Jul 1st 2021

Europe depends on workers moving. Whether they are making deliveries, harvesting fruits and vegetables, caring for elderly people, working in construction, lawyers, doctors, researchers or in many other kinds of work. People who move to a country in Europe are essential to the wellbeing of everyone.
– Mobile workers are more at risk of exploitation
– need for a better representation by trade unions and national authorities: fighting corruption in those institutions, training personnel to issues affecting the most vulnerable in the agricultural sector
– larger andeasier access to information for workers on their rights to social protection and legal aid
– larger and more local funding for health services and safe housing
– more flexible migration laws with non-EU countries, for crossing borders to care for their families.
