We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of David Sassoli, President of the European Parliament.
David Sassoli was a true defender of European values and democracy, and fought for a fairer and more united Europe.
He was a kind and caring man, an outstanding progressive leader, a supporter of Social Europe and a friend of workers and trade unions. He will be missed very much.
The deepest condolences of the European Trade Union Confederation to his family and loved ones.
