Abstract

Freedom of movement in the EU has often been viewed as a threat to trade unions, with an increased supply of labour assumed to be a factor in undermining the ability of unions to lobby employers for better working conditions. But how have trade unions responded to freedom of movement? Using Luxembourg as a case study, Adrien Thomas writes that while trade unions have developed services for migrant workers, there are still a number of obstacles in place that prevent such workers from participating fully in the decisions made by unions.
