Trades unionists across Europe are being urged to organise events on Saturday December 18 to mark international migrants day.
A Brussels-based campaigning group called December 18 is calling on the member states of the European Union to ratify the “international convention on the protection of rights of all migrant workers and members of their families”.
So far 43 Members of the European Parliament have signed a petition in favour of ratification.
International trades unionists who have backed the petition include John Monks, general secretary of the European Trade Union Confederation.
