EU sources -Troika policy criticized - demonstration for a social Europe -January 27, 2014

The European trade union confederation ETUC presented the results of its investigations into the activities of the Troika in Cyprus, Greece, Ireland and Portugal. The report shows that countries where the Troika has implemented its policies have paid a high economic and social price. The ETUC demands substantial amendments to the existing programmes and mechanisms to ensure that the Troika’s policy of austerity and deregulation cannot be repeated in the future. The ETUC also announced a European trade union demonstration in Brussels on 4 April 2014, as the European Parliament prepares to elect new members. It is part of its campaign A New path for Europe, outlining a bold new investment plan for the EU, based on a sustainable industrial policy and quality jobs. The ETUC is asking for the involvement of social partners in strengthening social dialogue, collective bargaining and worker participation, particularly in relation to economic governance process at national and EU level, education and training and labour market reform.
