EU: Struggle to get laws over the line

The EU Council of Ministers refused to endorse the deal on the Platform Workers law before Christmas, and the newly incoming Belgium Council presidency is still struggling to find a way forward.

Why it matters: The opposition to the deal led by the French government and the difficulties in finding consensus highlight the challenges of passing legislation in the EU.

The big picture: There are suggestions to split the Directive into two parts, one dealing with informing and consulting employees on AI/algorithms, and the other addressing employment status. Talks on the second Directive could be put back until later this year.
