Mrs. Susan Flocken
European Director

Dear Mrs. Flocken,

Thank you for your letter 9 September alerting us to the situation of possible violations of social dialogue and workers’ rights, not least in the current context of the multiple crises circumstances which has undoubtedly serious negative consequences on working conditions and sheds its negative light on quality education and lifelong learning.

You refer in your letter particularly to violations of social dialogue and worker’s rights in Portugal, relating to the Fixed-term Work Directive 1999/70/EC and in Greece, relating to ILO Convention 87 on Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organise and to ILO Convention 151 on Labour Relations (Public Service) concerning persons employed by public authorities.

In relation with the alleged infringement of Directive 1999/70/EC in Portugal, I would like to inform you that it is being already investigated by the Commission in the framework of an infringement procedure and that a reasoned opinion was sent to Portugal on 15 July 2022.
