The Campaign

A pay rise for European workers – It’s time for OUR recovery!

Today, wealth and wage inequality is on the rise, and collective bargaining – the best way to get a pay rise – should be encouraged and promoted, not come under attack as it has in recent years.

That is why the European trade union movement has banded together in this campaign to make sure workers get their pay rise. The campaign will highlight the many reasons why workers need a pay rise, and the pay injustices that need to be tackled through pay rises.

These will include the gender pay gap, unpaid and badly paid work of young people, too low minimum wages, and the unacceptable and unjustifiable pay gap between low wage countries and better wage countries within the EU.

Already the campaign has been taken up in many European countries, and translated into different languages.
