About the book
European Labour law is at a crossroads. Recent decisions of the European Court of Justice in Viking, Laval, Ruffert and Luxembourg have shone a spotlight on what many see as a fundamental contradiction at the heart of the European project. That contradiction poses the freedom of trade unions to protect the rights of workers against the freedom of capital to roam the globe in search of free markets and flexible workers.
So what makes the 2008 ‘crossroads’ significant? This edition of Federation News aims to examine that question and assess why Europe is facing its current ‘constitutional crisis’ and what, if anything, can be done about it.
