ETUC Executive Committee: European Trade Unions meet in Brussels

Brussels, 12/10/2010

The ETUC member organisations, meeting in the framework of the ETUC Executive Committee, will discuss the next steps in their action to put up a common front against austerity measures. ETUC General Secretary John Monks announced on 29 September that "this is just the beginning of the struggle, not the end".

Other subjects will also be on the agenda: economic and social governance, migration, the ETUC's response to the European Commission's Green Paper on pensions, climate change and its consequences on employment in advance of next December's Cancun summit and the question of workers' rights in the framework of the European labour market.
