Abstract [en]

The European Court of Justice, since the end of 2007, has delivered a series of rulings in the Viking, Laval, Rüffert and the Luxemburg cases, which directly address issues of the right to defend existing standards against erosion by workers prepared to work for lower wages and under inferior conditions. The series of hostile judgments has come as a shock to many in the European labour movement. The Court has clearly privileged the economic priorities of the European project, in particular, European treaty provisions on freedom of provision of services and the freedom of establishment of undertakings over the ‘social dimension’ of the European project.
