Draft Directive on adequate minimum wages

June 30, 2022

The presidency of the Council and European Parliament negotiators recently reached a provisional political agreement on the draft directive on adequate minimum wages in the EU.  In October 2020, the EU Commission published proposals for a Directive on adequate minimum wages within the EU with the aim of increasing the access of workers to minimum wage protection.  In all member states, the Commission proposal aims at promoting collective bargaining on wages and improving the enforcement and monitoring of minimum wage protection.
