Portability of Pensions and Worker Mobility Key to EU Growth Agenda
03 May (PLANSPONSOREurope.com) – A high level of mobility among Europe’s workers as well as full portability of pensions will play a key part in the European Union’s Growth Agenda, according to László Andor EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.
Addressing the National Union of General and Municipal Workers (GMB), Unite and Unison - Conference in Manchester today, Andor said: “For a labour market to be dynamic, there also has to be a high level of mobility. The Commission aims to remove any remaining legal and practical obstacles to the free movement of workers in order to make it easier for EU citizens to change countries for work purposes, because this benefits all our economies. Ensuring full portability of pensions is one aspect of this.”
