European Sectoral Social Dialogue in the gas sector reactivated: The role of gas in a de-carbonised European economy
Today the European trade union federations, industriAll European Trade Union and EPSU, and the industry association Eurogas, restarted their European Social Dialogue in the gas sector
On 27 November, the new European Commission was approved with a comfortable majority and now that President Ursula von der Leyen is up and running we can expect an avalanche of proposals in the next six months.
Ten thousands of health and care workers are taking part in actions and strikes across Europe. And the demands, despite the diversity of countries, are similar. More public funding is needed to provide quality services delivered by workers on decent pay.
On 24 October, the General Court in Luxembourg ruled against EPSU in its case against the European Commission (T-310/18).
epsucob@NEWS is EPSU’s newsletter covering developments in collective bargaining and pay and conditions in the public services across Europe. As well as general editions, EPSU also produces some special issues focusing on key topics such as minimum wages, trade union rights, pensions and economic governance. Further special issues are planned for the future. Please send us short updates on collective bargaining in your country so that we can improve the coverage of the newsletter. You can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
