EU Council of Ministers’ Legal Service provides opinion on the legal basis of the EU Directive proposal on adequate minimum wages
Planet Labor, 18 March 2021, n°12425 -

Governments will no longer be able to invoke the lack of EU competence in negotiations on the draft EU Directive on adequate minimum wages. Planet Labor has obtained the decision handed down by the EU Council Legal Service from 09 March that validates the legal basis used by the EU Commission in its legislative proposal (c.f. article No. 12199). According to its opinion, as long as the initiative does not set either the level of the minimum wage nor its calculation basis, then there is no violation of the TFEU and Article 152 (TFEU), which recognizes ‘the diversity of national systems’ and ‘the autonomy’ of the Member States in matters of social policy.
