EFBWW and FIEC jointly against exemptions to prior notification for the construction industry


EFBWW and FIEC, the European sectoral social partners for the construction industry, jointly oppose the possibility that prior notification would not apply for postings in the construction industry, including for short-term postings.

EFBWW General Secretary Tom Deleu warns that prior notification for all postings in construction is unnegotiable: “Any exemption will lead to more social dumping and more social fraud in the construction sector. Mobile workers need a strong social security coordination. Posting without notification to the authorities decreases workers’ social security protection.”

“FIEC is opposed to any form of temporary exemption to the prior notification of the A1 form for the construction industry”, states FIEC Vice-President Joël Schons.

Therefore, all posting assignments in the construction sector must be subject to the prior notification obligation, regardless of their duration. We will not accept any exceptions for our sectors!
