On May the first, International Workers Day (IWD) we received the sad news of the arrest of Zeynep Çelik a nurse and former Executive Committee member of EPSU Turkish affiliate Dev-Sağlık-İş (DISK).
Many unions have been active on Public Services Day to underline that CETA is a bad deal for public service workers. Our message is getting more and more response. Governments have this week demanded that national parliaments should have a say as well. But the issue is Brexit.
Our latest newsletter highlights just some of the developments for unions in Europe, in what has been once again a packed two weeks for EPSU.
The past month was a busy one for EPSU, particularly with the 52nd Meeting of our Executive Committee and the launch of our brand new website. It was also a month which saw the international day of commemoration for all workers injured, killed or made ill in the workplace (28 April).
