More Employment, Decent Jobs – Stop precarious work in Europe!
22 September 2014   On 7th October 2014, the World Day for Decent Work, European trade unions all over Europe will take action for a European economy which has to be based on decent jobs, not on precariousness.

We will not be played off against each other, not at transnational level, nor on sectoral level, nor on company level. read more
