Unions are at the table as European Parliament ushers in new Labour Authority

MEPs have formally signed off on a proposal to create a new European Labour Authority to oversee fair application of EU labour laws to workers who move around Europe. A huge step forward! Trade unions will have a major role in the powerful new body. But there is more work to do, so that transport workers are fully covered.
