EU workers who move to a different EU country will be allowed to safeguard their supplementary pension rights, under a deal between Parliament and member states backed by employment MEPs on Monday. The legislation will apply to EU workers who move within the EU and, at Parliament’s insistence, also to cross-border workers.

The Employment Committee endorsed the agreed text by 39 votes to none, with 2 abstentions.


Next steps

The new rules will be put to a vote by the full Parliament in February. If they are approved, member states will have four years to put them into effect.
