The difficulties involved in implementing Directive 96/71/EC were the result of a regulation which gave rise to substantial shortcomings in relation to legal definitions, administrative control, monitoring and the imperfection of the sanctions mechanism in the Member States. With this in mind, the enforcement directive 2014/67/EU was adopted in 2014. The enforcement directive provides for improved regulatory issues relating to terminology clarifications, the assurance of access to information and administrative cooperation, the strengthening of mutual assistance and the exchange of good practices, as well as shall provide for monitoring and control measures. However, the directive has not allowed opportunities and ways for trade unions to act as strong social partners for employee representation.
Very often seconded workers and companies posting them do not know what guarantees the host country provides, what collective agreements are valid for host organizations.
Therefore, social partners and institutions need to work more closely together, developing a strong cooperation model, in which the social partners and responsible institutions work in one direction: pursuing joint trainings, developing common tools and carry out sociological research. This major work has been launched on the first project "Posting of workers: administrative cooperation and reinforcement of access to information in the Baltic states" No. VS/2014/0011 ", whose implementation was attended by the State Labour Inspectorate The social partners from the 3 Baltic countries will be successfully developed in this project. In this project, the collaborative network expands: The National Confederation of Poland is joined and covers all Polish trade unions and the Polish Labour Inspectorate. The collaborative network brings together over 20 organisations from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland.
The main objective of this network is to combine the powers of the competent authorities and the social partners, to increase the transparency and accessibility of information, thus fusing the implementation, application and enforcement of Directive 96/71 / EC2 and Directive 2014/67 / EU.
