This report examines the main trends in temporary agency work and the problems and challenges it poses for the different Member States and the EU as a whole. It puts the spotlight on the working conditions of temporary agency workers, and the specific features of such work that might help explain these conditions. It also looks at issues such as the position of temporary agency work in the labour market, equal treatment as regards pay and working conditions and collective bargaining aspects such as trade union participation and access to participation for agency workers.
