On 12 December, workers and their unions, including UNI Europa and its affiliates, will come together from across Europe to protest the return of European austerity in Brussels.
All of us need access to quality care, education and a safety net of decency to hold us up in times of need. Negotiations are taking place in Brussels that could undermine those very things that allow our societies to flourish. We cannot let the attempt to return Europe to strict austerity rules succeed.
Working communities are in need of public investments in education, healthcare, in salaries that keep up and in a sustainable future. Now, as the continent faces a cost-of-living crisis driven by record profits, working people should not be the ones to pay the price.
The European Union’s solidarity-based response to the Covid-19 pandemic showed what was possible. Freeing up funding to keep people’s jobs and incomes secure was crucial. We need more of the same, not a return to the failed recipes of the past.
That’s why the European trade union movement is mobilising to Brussels on 12 December. Join us!
