ETUC Programme for the EU Elections 2019

ETUC Programme

The European elections – 23-26 May 2019 – will be decisive for working people.

The new European Parliament can either make the EU a better place, or undermine the European cooperation built up over many years.

The European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) – with some 45 million working people in 90 trade unions in 38 countries – believes that a fairer Europe for workers is possible, based on democracy and social justice, quality jobs and higher wages, a socially fair and just transitions to a low-carbon and digital economy.

This should be the basis of a new social contract for Europe.
