Balanced deal on platform workers rules reached, leading MEP says –

Submitted by pmassetti on

The European Parliament reached a deal on the platform workers’ directive, pending confirmation by the Employment and Social Affairs Committee on 12 December.

The deal is the outcome of months of lengthy negotiations on the platform workers’ directive, which seeks for the most part to clarify platform workers’ employment status.

“There is a deal, and I am very happy about it,” Elisabetta Gualmini, the left-wing lawmaker spearheading the directive, told EURACTIV.

Finding a deal on such a complex and politicised file required Gualmini to walk a fine line, as the divide among MEPs was stark, with debates carried out on more on lines of national culture than political affiliation.
