On 23 April 2013, the ETUC Executive Committee adopted a position on the social dimension of the European Union. In adopting this text, they expressed their dismay at current policies aimed at fundamentally changing the European social model. In their view, these policies are based on ideology, not sound economics and it is now high time for a fundamental rethink. How do we ensure that the June European Summit does not disappoint workers, who expect guarantees for social Europe, not vacuous words? How do we ensure that the social dimension be given its whole importance?
Ahead of the June European Summit these and other questions will be addressed in our round-table by trade union leaders.

The discussion will be held in English and French with simultaneous interpretation.

Following the debate we invite you to join us for a walking buffet.

Please register until 31 May 2013 using one of the following links:
