Find here information on UNI Europa’s work on EU services policy. Unlike the European Commission, we do not believe that the integration of the internal market is enough to support quality jobs, growth, and quality services. UNI Europa therefore strives to develop an alternative EU services policy.

Over the past twenty years, creating the internal market for services has been the EU’s flagship initiative in the field of services policy. Yet, UNI Europa observes that the internal market project has contributed to the growth of precarious employment and low quality services. We are therefore active to change the direction of EU internal market policy and to put targeted policies for quality jobs and quality services on the Commission’s agenda. We work with the European institutions, fellow trade unions, and researchers to develop an EU services policy that works for all – service workers, consumers, and companies alike.
