Statement on the situation in Palestine and Israel

situation Israel/Palestine

(1 December 2023) The EPSU Executive Committee adopted (30 November) a statement to express its deep concern about the conflict between Israel and Hamas and the increasing instability in the European region and beyond. 

The statement reiterates the calls of the trade union movement for a permanent ceasefire and for renewed, and much more assertive, diplomatic efforts to secure  a “two state” solution  leading to viable, sovereign and independent states with all populations living in peace.  

As representatives of health and other public services workers the statement also draws attention to the impact of the conflict on public service workers and on the fundamental rights of people to access these services under all circumstances.
