Text size Aa Aa

BUCHAREST (Reuters) – Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said on Thursday that the European Union’s directive on posted workers must still be clarified and improved. “On the one hand, there is discontent in France over undeclared workers, on the other there are many people in Eastern Europe, in Romania, who want to work in France, Germany, Spain. It is clear the directive needs to be clarified and improved,” Iohannis told a briefing in Bucharest with French President Emannuel Macron. The EU is trying to overcome differences between western and eastern European countries about the practise that allows firms in low-wage countries to post workers elsewhere.
