In support of the European Campaign for Declared Work led by the European Commission, CoESS and UNI Europa have published today a Joint Statement on tackling undeclared work in the private security sector.
Undeclared work stands in fundamental conflict with the values of the private security sector. It harms businesses, workers social protection and economies at large. In the private security industry, undeclared work is a danger to public security and, therefore, to public safety as well.
The EU Sectoral Social Partners for private security services, CoESS and UNI Europa, are convinced that the problem must be tackled together, across the value chain, and call in their statement on companies, workers and policymakers alike to take responsibility and action.
The statement comes in support of the ongoing European Campaign for Declared Work, led by the European Commission, the European Labour Authority and the European Platform for tackling undeclared work.
CoESS and UNI Europa are observers of the platform and have already published a joint statement against undeclared work back in 2006. You can find out more information on the European Campaign for Declared Work here.
