Solidarity appeal: Balkan floods

03 June 2014
Severe flooding has affected many hundred thousands of citizens and caused grave damage in several Balkan countries such as Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia. PSI and EPSU have written to affiliated unions calling on them to provide assistance allowing the unions to support their members and continue union work.

The 9th EPSU Congress, recently held in Toulouse, France, heard evidence from trade union representatives from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia - watch the video on YouTube.

Congress sent a message of sympathy and solidarity to the unions and agreed to call on affiliated unions to provide assistance allowing the unions to support their members and continue the union work.

As several countries and unions are involved, EPSU plays a coordinating role. The contributions can be made to the EPSU Bank account - please mention: Flooding Balkans. 

EPSU account : IBAN: BE62437620094261 – BIC: KREDBEBB

On behalf of the unions, Rosa Pavanelli PSI General Secretary and Jan Willem Goudriaan, newly elected EPSU General Secretary, thank you in advance for the support provided. See PSI/EPSU letter.
