EPSU Trade Union Journalists seminar, 5-6 December 2005

"Making EU developments VISIBLE in EPSU Affiliates' publications"

This initiative is a detailed and ambitious attempt by EPSU to co-ordinate and assist our national affiliates in disseminating EU developments and proposals effectively. By ‘effectively' it is meant that ordinary members begin to see how EU policies are affecting them. EPSU has 216 affiliate organisations and counting, and the publications and website of these affiliate organisations are an extremely valuable resource. The opposition to the Services (Bolkestein) directive is a good example of what can be achieved when we co-ordinate our message. Our aim, through this seminar, is to create a network of EPSU briefed trade union journalists so that ordinary members can understand and benefit from the actions and initiatives we launch at EU level. >read more
