Solidarity message to Croatian affiliates after earthquake

ETUC General Secretary Luca Visentini

The European Trade Union Confederation sends a message of solidarity to our Croatian affiliates, the SSSH and NHS, following the devastating earthquake which hit Zagreb and Croatia on Sunday.

Speaking on behalf of ETUC members in 37 other countries across the continent, General Secretary Luca Visentini said:

“Trade unionists across Europe send their strongest solidarity to the Croatian population, workers and our colleagues in Croatia at this extremely difficult time.

“At a time when the coronavirus crisis has made life more difficult for working people, we recognise that the burden has been doubled for our colleagues in Croatia by this disaster.

“Our thoughts are with all those who have been injured, had their homes damaged or are now working in difficult conditions to deal with the fallout, especially when it comes to workers in health care and essential public services. 

“The ETUC stands ready to assist our Croatian affiliates in ensuring the country receives any extra financial support it might need to repair the damage and deal with the ongoing health emergency.”
