Hungarian Government must stop criminalisation of migrants, says ETUC

Hungarian Government must stop criminalisation of migrants, says ETUC

The European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) is extremely worried by the so-called ‘national consultation about immigration and terrorism’ recently launched by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. The letter launching the consultation and the attached questionnaire is a perverse attempt to criminalise migrants and fuel populism by making a clear and direct connection between migration and terrorism. Wrong assumptions can only lead to bad policies and are surely not in the interests of Hungarian citizens.

PRESS RELEASE

kongresszusTo Everyone!
Same interest - common action!

The Hungarian Trade Union Confederation held its first congress on 21 November 2014, and decided about the steps necessary for the realization of integration.

The Congress considers that immediate changes are needed in the situation of the country, of jobs, and of the people. The tax laws passed, the draft budget bring the public sector and most sectors of the economy in a precarious position, which, if left unchanged lead to dysfunction. Subsequent transfers of income further increase the gap between the rich and those fighting for livelihood. The government intends to introduce another public works program financed by cuts of social support, which will cause further troubles.
