EFFAT Roadmap of actions for the campaign against precarious work
EFFAT Roadmap on implementing the Charter against Precarious Work: Draft decision for the Executive Committee on 20 and 21 April 2010
The EFFAT sectors are more concerned with precarious work than those of other European trade union federations. Around two-thirds of EU agricultural workers are in precarious jobs. On average, 30% of employees in hotels and restaurants are working part time; however, in some countries the percentages are even more unfavourable. In the food sector the number of external service providers and sub-contractors increased significantly in recent years particularly in the slaughterhouses, the proportion of external workers that are posted by companies from other EU Member States in the context of freedom of services are making in many cases for more than 50% of all employees. Women workers are generally the largest share of precarious workers.
