Our colleagues from the ECB are planning their first strike on June 3rd. Send a message of solidarity to IPSO-ECB as a sign of your support to their fight for their own rights!
It is time to be in the action as we decided during our Executive Committee in Spain!
After the support you have brought to our colleagues from UHBC from Malta (check our website), we come to you again in order to ask for your strong support to our colleagues from IPSO-ECB, who are organising their first great demonstration strike in front of the ECB. On behalf of all of you, Thierry DESANOIS, President of the SCECBU, will be physically present with our colleagues from the ECB.
Let's keep UNITED ALL TOGETHER!
"I support the claims of IPSO, from the ECB, in the framework of the strike action to be followed on June 3, 2009.
These claims fall under a legitimate process for recognition of fundamental European trade union rights. The official recognition of the right to negotiation inside the ECB will open the process of consultation, under a legal framework, of the organisation and working conditions of staff.
At a time when the financial crisis confirms the inner role of central banks in the regulatory system, the ECB cannot refrain from recognizing the legitimate concerns and demands, particularly those concerning the management of pension funds of its employees. On this point, negotiations should be quickly opened in a spirit of dialogue and search for consensus as broad as possible.
