Cost of labour and wages in public service contracts. Legal framework and some numbers

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The study first attempts to demonstrate, through the support of numerical data, that workers employed in public service contracts are in all respects to be considered low-wage workers. The wage levels foreseen by the national collective agreements applicable to the sector are on average lower than those of many other productive sectors. This is despite the fact that the Public Contracts Code provides provisions which, if correctly interpreted and applied, are able to combat wage dumping practices. However, the most difficult legal problem to resolve remains the compatibility of the national framework with respect to the EU law competition principles.
