MEPs in Strasbourg signed off on the bloc’s first set of pan-EU rules on temporary seasonal workers which will give them the same work-place rights as EU nationals on minimum pay, working hours, holidays, and health and safety requirements.

The European Commission estimates that over 100,000 third-country seasonal workers come to the EU every year.
