Violence against women must stop, full stop. Trade Unions across Europe fully support the call on the European Union to do all it can to fight violence against women. This is the message from ETUC to Ms Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, and to Commissioner Ms Helena Dalli.
The current President of LO Sweden, Karl-Petter Thorwaldsson, has informed the election committee about his decision not to stand as candidate for the presidency of LO for a new term of office. This means that he will resign at the next Congress of LO, to be held in June 2020.
There is an apparent risk that ordinary citizens – low income-earners and people in rural areas – will be the ones to bear an unproportionate share of the social consequences of the climate transition. LO will never accept that our members must bear more than what is fair. We want an equitable transition.
