"New specialists that have been appointed since late 2012 get lower pay. Addressing the conference, Minister for Health Simon Harris said that a process will be established to deal with the issue. ...[Dr Padraig McGarry] said the continuation of the pay differential was 'a key factor in explaining why 500 consultant posts in Ireland are vacant and patients are being forced to wait unacceptable lengths of time to see a consultant'"
MEPs approve the creation of the European Labour Authority
"Combating social dumping [?!] requires real coordination at EU level," said socialist MEP Christine Revault d'Allonnes Bonnefoy. "This body will help make Europe's labour market fairer by combating fraud and abuse and by enabling citizen mobility," she added.
The European Labour Authority, which should be set up in 2019 with more than 100 staff, should make it possible to respond - at least in part - to this problem. It would support the fight against fraud, in particular by promoting coordination between the EU member states' various labour inspection systems.
In the EU Court of Auditors' annual report, the question of the status of workers posted abroad is not presented as problematic in itself. But abuses are difficult [!] for control services to grasp because concerned [!] foreign companies refuse to cooperate and assistance from countries of origin [!] is also difficult to obtain.
