European Court of Justice on Spanish workers

Spanish trade unions

European Court Of Justice Makes Spain’s Trade Unions Blush

The European Court of Justice’s recent ruling on the conformity of Spanish legislation with regard to compensation for temporary workers whose contracts are terminated is a serious setback for the country’s trade unions. The number of workers who may be affected by the European Court of Justice’s ruling is very high. It could have an impact on the almost 4 million temporary contract workers in the country, of which 300,000 are interim staff in Spain’s administration.
