European Elections 2019: Special Newsletter of the Workers' Group

Hand voting over a eu flag

“The upcoming European Elections, taking place 23-26 May 2019, are going to be decisive for all European citizens. To help you engage your national members in the campaign leading up to the elections, the EESC Workers’ Group has prepared an EU Election Special that provides you with several resources outlining the importance of the European Union in citizens’ everyday lives and its accomplishments for working people. I invite you to share these resources with your national networks. The EU is by no means perfect – we need a Europe that works for everyone and leaves no one behind. To achieve this we must encourage trade unionists across the EU to vote for progressive politicians who support the trade union agenda for a fairer Europe based on democracy and social justice, quality jobs, decent wages and a socially fair and just transition to a low-carbon and digital economy.” 

Oliver Röpke, President of the EESC Workers’ Group
