The ETUC supports democratic transition in Egypt
The General Secretary of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), Bernadette Ségol, attended the congress of the Egyptian Federation of Independent Trade Unions (EFITU). She reiterated the ETUC’s support for the Egyptian trade union movement in its efforts to bring democracy to Egypt.
Speaking at the EFITU Congress in Cairo on 29 January, Bernadette Ségol commented: "The Egyptian revolution has just begun. The Egyptian trade union movement has an important role to play in making Egypt a democratic country. The ETUC assures it of its full support and solidarity in this process. I will see to it that the message is passed on to the European authorities: burgeoning democracy in Egypt must be supported to enable it to take root and develop on a lasting basis. This is everyone’s duty."
