The European Union of Independent trade Unions (CESI) and the European Federation of employees in the public sector

(EUROFEDOP) have paved the path for a joint future.  On the 1st December 2008 in the CESI´s Congress EUROFEDOP - a European umbrella organization of about 1 million workers- became a registered member of CESI.

The CESI´s General Secretary, Helmut Müllers, marked this day as historic for independent trade unions all over Europe.

“Facing the financial crisis, European trade unions are more than ever called upon to raise their voice for Europe’s Social Dimension. Our new Member EUROFEDOP strengthens the CESI voice on this account. Together we will give our full support to the EU to solver the financial crisis while ensuring that the crisis will not be misused
to argue towards a further decrease of the workers´ and citizens’ social standards. “

Helmut Müllers, CESI General Secretary

CESI is the mouthpiece for nine million workers in the public and private sector. Founded in 1955 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.
