With 2014 marking an important year of change for Europe and its citizens, CESI has been working on reinforcing and renewing its ethos to promote better living and working conditions at European level through its work as a European social partner. CESI is making all workers count. CESI is promoting public services work. CESI is closing the gap

All workers count. Public services work. Closing the gap

All workers count

At the core of CESI’s values is its independence. Through its independence and its open, inclusive policy, CESI gives a voice to those workers who would otherwise not have a voice in European policies and in European social dialogue. CESI gives these people a voice because all workers count. #allworkerscount

Public services work

CESI is proud that many of its members are representative in the public sector. Public services are an integral part of society. Public services are there to protect citizens when they need help. Public services are the foundations for citizen well-being. Now more than ever, during this difficult economic climate, public services have been seen to do the job they were set out to do. Public services work.  But we need public services workers to work effectively. By keeping the public sector filled with high quality staff and by fighting against a public sector blame culture, CESI works for public services, in the public interest. #publicserviceswork

Closing the gap

CESI exists to reduce a gap between independent unions in the EU and decision makers and policymakers in Brussels whose work impacts on workers’ daily lives. The European Union is becoming an ever more important decision-making level. By closing the gap, CESI give its members the opportunity to operate beyond national boundaries. CESI closes the gap between national and European policy. CESI closes the gap between different countries. CESI closes the gap by including workers who would otherwise be stripped of any voice at EU level. #closingthegap
