Romanians’ access on Spanish labour market, officially restricted

The European Commission (EC) adopted yesterday the decision approving Spain’s petition for restricting Romanian workers’ access on the local labour market until December 31, 2012, according to a release posted on the European body’s website. Laszlo Andor, the European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, stated: “This decision was adopted due to the peculiar situation of employment in Spain. As a rule, I am persuaded that restricting the free circulation of European workers is not the proper way to tackle high unemployment rates. We should focus, rather, on creating new job opportunities”. The restrictions will be applied in all sectors and regions, but do not affect Romanian citizens who are already active on the Spanish labour market. December 31, 2012 deadline by which it has authorized to impose restrictions on Romanian Spanish labour market is considered sufficient to adopt the necessary measures to combat unemployment effectively, but the Commission may modify its decision at any time, said Chantal Hughs, EC spokesman. The decision of EU member states to restrict access to Romanian labor market – driven by internal economic reasons – is understandable, even if it is not approved by the Romanian authorities said on Tuesday, Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi, quoted by
