The ETUC reiterates its very strong support for the French trade unions united in their mobilisation for social dialogue and against the pension reform in France.
The way in which the French pension reform was adopted, without any dialogue with social partners, is not acceptable.
The European Social model is based on social dialogue. The respect for social dialogue and for the role of social partners is a key component of democracy in Europe and must be promoted, not disregarded.

ETUC Code of Conduct for Meetings, Events and Courses
Adopted during the Executive Committee meeting of 9-10 March 2020
The ETUC has zero tolerance for any violence and any type of harassment including sexual harassment.
Violence and harassment in the world of work deprives people of their dignity, is incompatible with decent work. It is a threat to equality and equal opportunities and to safe, healthy, and productive working environments.
Safety and health at work – and prevention of MSDs - more important than ever in times of Covid-19
The health and safety of workers and the protection of jobs and rights have been the priority of the European trade union movement throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. When the restrictions relaxed to achieve a gradual return to economic activity, the ETUC demanded guarantees that the health and safety of workers is fully protected.
