50.000 workers say: We need a change, we need a new path for Europe

4 April 2014 Euro Demo, Brussels
(7 April 2014) We were with many and from all over Europe in the Euro-demonstration to demand an end to austerity and a change of direction away from policies that create inequality, poverty and unemployment Friday 4 April. The demo was headed by a large group of young workers. Young people are faced with very high unemployment, precarious jobs, worse pensions and pay.

The European trade union federations are campaigning to improve the prospects for young people for the future.

The EPSU group marched for quality public services, social justice, jobs for all, and against austerity. Trade unionists from several affiliates participated and including a large group of CGSP colleagues from Liege and Luxembourg who provided logistical support. A group of young workers of Kommunal helped carrying our banner. EPSU Secretariat thanks all the affiliates for sending delegates to the demo as well as the many unions which circulated pictures, press releases and other material in support of the demo.

The ETUC called for the demonstration to underline the trade union movement's demands for Another Europe, 4 April 2014, Brussels. Campaigning under the heading a New Path For Europe ETUC is stressing that the European Union needs to invest in jobs, in infra-structure, in research and development to get the European economy growing again, and in a sustainable manner that strengthens workers' rights and respects the environment.
