« No cuts, more growth » - European Day of Action
On September 29, to coincide with a meeting of European finance ministers, the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) will organise a European Day of Action.
As European Governments move collectively to slash public expenditure, including jobs, pay and pensions, while the European economy is fragile and vulnerable to renewed recession, the ETUC is to mobilise a collective trade union response. This will be centred on a big demonstration in Brussels but the ETUC is calling on affiliates to take the maximum possible degree of action in all the countries of the European Union. This can include protest stoppages, demonstrations, meetings with Government finance ministers etc.
The ETUC is also supporting the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) world wide Day of Decent Work on October 7.
