Chapter Summary

Article 69 of the ECSC Treaty provided for removal of all restrictions based on nationality upon the employment of workers in the Member States. To define the scope, ratione personae, of the rules on the freedom of movement of workers, the beneficiaries of the freedom must be identified and meaning of "worker" intended by the Treaty should be defined. Freedom of movement is only to workers and their families who are citizens of a Member State. The freedom of movement of workers is for the purpose of accepting "offers of employment" and not for seeking work at a stage prior to the offer. The right to equal treatment of migrant community workers with national workers and the right to remain in the territory of a Member State after having worked there are few rights provided. European regulation is "a non-legislative act of general application for certain provisions of the Constitution".
