In a resolution adopted by the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) executive committee on 14-15th March 2006, the ETUC urges the heads of governments, meeting in the Spring European Council at the end of this week, to address the real concerns of European people.
Workers in Europe are worried about the lack of decent jobs, precarious and insecure jobs that are spreading throughout the economy and about the rising levels of poverty and social exclusion. They reject a policy agenda that, using the alibi of business friendly competitiveness, will make matters worse by reducing wages, working conditions, social protection and prolonging working hours.
