fHowever, the fact that social policy is one of the aims of the EC Treaty does not mean that measures taken in this field are automatically excluded from the scope of the rules on freedom of movementf; fAs to whether the actions in question strike a strike a fair balance between the right to take collective action and the freedom of establishment, the Advocate General notes that a coordinated policy of collective action among unions normally constitutes a legitimate means to protect the wages and working conditions of seafarers. However, collective action that has the effect of partitioning the labour market and that impedes the hiring of seafarers from certain Member States in order to protect the jobs of seafarers in other Member States would strike at the heart of the principle of non-discrimination on which the common market is founded.f
