Trade Unions Without Borders

Obrežje, 25 April 2013 – At their traditional, seventh, gathering Trade Unions Without Borders at the border crossing between Croatia and Slovenia, Obrežje, the UATUC and the Association of Free Trade Unions of Slovenia (ZSSS) signed the Joint Statement, which, among others, welcomes Croatia as a new EU Member State, and recognizes the UATUC contribution to the protection of workers' rights in the process. The Statement reiterated the trade union demand for the EU based on equality, solidarity, social justice and social cohesion, giving priority to social rights over economic freedoms. The two confederations in that regard advocated the adoption of the Social Compact for Europe. UATUC and ZSSS reaffirmed their commitment to the promotion of the European integration processes in the region and providing support to the trade unions in South East Europe.
