Milan: another summit for no result


Commenting on the Employment Summit in Milan on 8th October 2014, Bernadette Ségol, General Secretary of the European Trade Union Confederation said “This summit will go down as a ceremonial non-event. Nothing has changed. Calls for an investment plan leading to sustainable growth and quality employment received no positive echoes from country leaders. Labour reforms and internal devaluation continue to be the agreed mantra.”

“At a time when all economic signals are red and leading economists, joined by the IMF, call for different policies, leaders continue blindly in the same direction, putting the burden on workers and citizens.”

“ETUC does not want summits promoting failing recipes, but action for investment for sustainable growth and quality jobs.”
