Changing Europe together – 4th UNI Europa conference

Thursday 24 September 2015

UNI Europa Regional Secretary message

Dear colleagues, dear friends,

for the UNI Europa secretariat and the Conference Preparatory Committee excitement around the 4th UNI Europa Conference is building up quickly.

Our work in building an interesting programme is progressing and being guided by the slogan of the conference Changing Europe together – Cambiamo insieme l’Europa.

The conference slogan has been chosen for more than one reason. It illustrates that Europe is in a period of rapid change. It highlights that service unions need to get actively involved to change Europe as it is developing today. And it last but not least reflects the urgent need for services unions keep working together to change Europe’s direction towards a fair and social Europe.

Similarly, the conference logo has been designed to reflect the changing environment but above all the possibilities of strength we have when we work together, united and with one voice. It also symbolises the way we all come together at Rome, with different backgrounds but towards one common goal – making Europe a fair and social place.

The conference will be divided into three sessions designed to discuss and agree motions with the titles Changing Europe by Growing Unions”, Changing Europe by Growing Bargaining Power and Changing Europe by Growing Quality Jobs”.

Join us in Rome for lively debates and to meet your colleagues from all over Europe.
