Bernadette Ségol at the European Council: “Workers want action now, not more words” “Citizens’ confidence is at stake”
Today Bernadette Ségol, Secretary General of the ETUC, addressed the European Council. She underlined that in such a tense social and economic situation it is necessary to act and avoid media hype.
The ETUC demands a stimulus package of investment for jobs. The struggle against the scourge of unemployment, notably that of young people, demands significant investment. The ETUC reminds the European leaders that it is still waiting for the roadmap on the social dimension of the EU, which was announced in Dec 2012.
The General Secretary stressed the urgency of calling a halt to failed policies and, one year before the European elections, demands that the Council takes appropriate action against populist movements in Europe.
