It has been said that the Common Market’s social policy does not lend itself to systematic treatment; but the ‘upward harmonisation’ of living and working conditions is a fundamental principle of the Treaty. An economic union implies freedom of movement for labour. Therefore such aspects of social policy as the achievement of equal pay for men and women, the alignments of social security benefits and payments, and the equating of relative values of national professional qualifications are essential contributions in attempting to achieve the aims of the Treaty. Further aspects of this are the process of allowing freedom of establishment and freedom to supply services together with retraining schemes.
