Local and regional governments as employers

Fair wages - 04.09.2020

Social partners' ability to negotiate wages should not be undermined
The European Commission is considering introducing legislation to ensure fair minimum wages across the Union. While the aim is laudable, CEMR has grave concerns about the Commission’s approach, which have been shared with the EU executive as part of its official consultation.

As employers, local governments fear that the proposed legislation would infringe on the autonomy of social partners to negotiate wages and could even create a downward convergence of wages around the minimum standards.

For more information, please consult CEMR’s full response to consultation.
