Priority question for written answer  P-002982/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Ioan-Rareş Bogdan (PPE)
 Subject: Need to improve conditions of employment for seasonal workers

Notwithstanding the regulations and recommendations of the EU institutions, Romanian seasonal workers continue to be the target of abuse.

A recent example concerns the inadmissible conditions under which dozens of Romanian seasonal workers were being housed on a farm in the Dutch village of Linne.

According media reports, this was brought to light by Dutch inspectors responsible for migrants and their working conditions. Although the owner of the farm has been fined and forced to improve working conditions and the Dutch mayor Stef Strous has acted in an exemplary, manner, for which I have personally thanked him, it is clear that Romanian seasonal workers are still being treated very badly in certain EU Member States.

How many such cases involving Romanians are brought to the Commission’s attention each year? Which Member States are the worst offenders when it comes to inadmissible working conditions and what is to be done?

Can the Commission provide us with all information at its disposal regarding the situation of Romanian seasonal workers?
