Press release

"With the Irish “no” the message has been out thrice that Europe has failed to listen to its citizen. The European policies are in desperate need of a stronger social aspect considering the rights of workers to be a key issue to its success. Europe can no longer shape its future solely on the aspects of economic growth, while cutting on peoples´ social rights.”

Helmut Müllers, CESI General Secretary
