Commenting on the British referendum on EU members, Luca Visentini, secretary general of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), said:

“This is a black day for Europe and the UK. It should sound the alarm to the EU so that it offers better prospects for workers.”

“There is great disappointment in Europe, not only in the UK. The austerity, reducing government spending, unemployment, the government ‘s failure to address the needs of people, the fact that the EU acts commonly makes people hostile to the EU. the workers want an EU that strongly improves their living conditions. ”

“The EU must ensure that this day does not mark the beginning of Europe burst, and not harm the jobs and rights of workers.”

“The European Union must ensure to enjoy new workers, to create a more just and equitable society and to invest in quality jobs, effective public services and real opportunities for young people.”

“The CES is combined with the TUC say that British workers should not pay the price of Brexit.”

“The ETUC will continue, and more, to fight for more social and fairer. ” (Courtesy: WFTU)
