#14Nov2012. For Jobs and Solidarity in Europe. No to Austerity.

You can take part in the European Day of Action and Solidarity on Facebook

The Executive Committee of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) called for a Day of Action and Solidarity, across Europe on 14 November in order to mobilise the European trade union movement behind the ETUC policies set out in the ‘Social compact for Europe’.

“The ETUC strongly opposes the austerity measures which are plunging Europe into economic stagnation, recession, and dismantling the European social model. These measures, far from restoring confidence, are only aggravating imbalances and creating injustices.”

This Day of Action and Solidarity will include strikes, demonstrations, rallies and other actions.
