Green MEP Jean Lambert has today called on the European Commission to take action to protect and strengthen public services that are vital to the well being of all European Citizens.
Speaking at the conference launching European Federation of Public Services Unions (EPSU) campaign backing the European Trade Unions Confederation (ETUC) Europe wide petition on the subject, Jean urged all those that care about public services to sign up.
Jean Lambert, who is Green MEP for London and has continued to campaign for the protection of public services, today said; “A wide variety of public services are relied upon by thousands of people across Europe and we simply can’t sit back and see these being undermined. We all have to act now to ensure everyone has access to good health care, schools and quality public services now and in the future.
“It is essential that the public interest is seen as more important than open markets and by reaching the target of one million signatures on the petition, the European Commission will see there is a public demand for action.”
