The IUF's European regional organization EFFAT-IUF is calling on the IUF's European member organizations to give full support to the campaign for mass union demonstrations across Europe on April 2-3. The political enlargement of the European Union (a project supported by the trade union movement) risks being undermined as many governments are weakening social services and protection, privatizing public services, undermining collective bargaining and blocking necessary social measures. The planned demonstrations and public events are intended to highlight the need for a strong social Europe with firm guarantees of worker and social rights incorporated in the new European Constitution.
