Whistleblowers - study International Day against corruption

New PSI-backed report makes the case for legal protection and strong trade union support for whistleblowers who are critical to fighting corruption: To mark today’s  International Day against corruption, EPSU General Secretary Jan Willem Goudriaan says:

“The appeal trial of the Luxleaks whistleblowers Antoine Deltour and Raphaël Halet and journalist Edouard Perrin beginning on 11th December in Luxembourg is a cruel reminder that Europe needs to protect whistleblowers not prosecute them. Our trade union petition and the support from the European Parliament mean that the time is ripe for the European Commission and Member States to take the lead in developing legislation that protects whistleblowers from reprisals and to recognise the role of trade unions to support workers who blow the whistle. We believe these actions will snowball into a global movement in support of whistleblowers”.
