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

Founded in 1990 as a European umbrella organisation bringing together independent and free trade unions with affiliates in more than 20 European Union Member States, it is recognised by the European Commission as a social partner.
