Solidarity from ETUCE member organisations

02 April 2020

The COVID 19 outbreak is a public health crisis quite different than anything Europe has faced for many years. As education personnel and their trade unions grapple with the outbreak, we are supporting and informing member organisations in any way we can.

The COVID-19 outbreak is a crisis for education systems across Europe. Staff are working hard to support their local and national communities, adapting to measures never seen before in peacetime. However, this pandemic has also revealed once again that education personnel and their trade unions in all countries have much in common. We can find strength by standing together.

Sharing their experiences, advice or just sending messages of solidarity and understanding, ETUCE member organisations have taken time to remember their colleagues abroad. See below some of the messages we have received – statements of cross-border solidarity for the millions of workers the ETUCE family represents.
