Spain: Proposal about the statute of seasonal workers

The European Commission presented to the European Parliament and to the Member States a proposal on seasonal workers, based on the consideration that the economy of the EU requires seasonal workers that are not available in the UE labor market, especially in agriculture, horticulture, and tourism. The proposal seeks to establish procedures for rapid and flexible administrative management, guaranteeing the rights of these workers while protecting the community workers who develop temporary jobs of a possible unfair competition. The proposal sets a limit on work permits for six months and provides for the issuance of permits for successive seasons for three years. The Directives foresee that these seasonal migrant workers from third countries receive the same treatment as nationals of the Member State granting permission in areas such as freedom of association, social security, access to public services and the implementation of collective agreements in the sectors where they develop their business.
