EPSU, European Federation of Public Service Unions, is the largest federation of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) and comprises 8 million public service workers from over 265 trade unions; EPSU organizes workers in the health and social services, local and national administration, waste, water and energy sectors in all European countries including in the EU’s Eastern Neighborhood. EPSU is the recognized regional organization of Public Services International (PSI).
FPS-UGT is well aware about the importance of European policies and their effects in the working conditions of our affiliates. But also about the effects on everybody’s daily life. Through EPSU we do not only defend public services workers, but also a Welfare model, the European Social Model! Hence, we are an active member of EPSU, and we will continue working to increase our participation in its daily activities and bodies of representation, from its executive committee to the National, Local&Regional or Health and Social Services committees.
FSP-UGT’s secretary general, Julio Lacuerda, is member of the Executive Committee of EPSU.
