The Brexit Vote
24 June 2016   The people of Britain have voted to leave the European Union (EU). IndustriAll Europe respect the Democratic process of the referendum. “We will cooperate with our British industrial trade unions to secure the future of British industry and its millions of workers and their families, so that workers will not pay the bill of this Brexit” declared Luc Triangle, industriAll Europe secretary general. The British people are not the only ones to be deeply disillusioned about the political direction taken by the European Union which has led to unemployment, cuts in social services, growing inequalities and attack on workers’ rights. It is about time to hear the call of the European people for a change of direction and for a more social Europe. read more

Employers and Trade Unions united ‘Yes’ to UK in the European Union
22 June 2016   Britain plays a major role in the EU and exerts significant influence. The economic consequences of a potential Brexit would undoubtedly be bad for Britain.

Therefore, representing manufacturing industries across the EU, the European manufacturing employers represented in CEEMET and the European industrial workers trade union, industriAll Europe, believe Brexit would amount to a lose-lose situation for Europe. Re-erecting political borders and economic hurdles are not a solution to address the challenges that Europe, including the UK, face and eventually would be detrimental to the prosperity of both the UK and the EU. read more

15 June 2016   As the European continent experiences the worst humanitarian crisis in its history, at its 2nd Congress industriAll Europe adopted a motion demanding from Europe a credible strategy and, above all, a show of solidarity for the inclusion of refugees. All industriAll Europe’s affiliated organisations and staff members in companies throughout Europe will demonstrate solidarity and shield refugees from all forms of prejudice and from greedy exploitation in the labour market leading to social dumping.
