CGIL demonstration for work, dignity and equality - defending migrant workers

(24 October 2014) EPSU has extended solidarity greetings to the CGIL Italian affiliates which are organising a demonstration 25 October. The unions demonstrate for work, dignity and equality. It will also be an occasion to raise the issue of migrant workers which is important now the extreme-right is on the rise in Europe and migrant workers are among the most vulnerable in our society. EPSU Congress adopted an important policy resolution on the rights of migrant workers. The demonstration comes in the wake of a coordinated European Union crackdown on migrant workers, coordinated with and supported by Frontex, the EU border guard agency. It is assuming a role in EU internal police affairs that goes beyond its mandate and potentially escapes democratic control. Letter to CGIL affiliates:
