Jobbik launches campaign on EU wage union
Budapest, March 21 (MTI) – Hungarian opposition party Jobbik is launching a campaign to promote its bid to equalize wages throughout the European Union, Márton Gyöngyösi, party MP told a press briefing on Tuesday.
The citizens’ committee formed by Jobbik last week has already sent its petition to Alexander Italianer, Secretary General of the European Commission, Gyöngyösi noted. The committee is asking for a speedy assessment of the petition so work can begin to collect one million signatures needed to include the principle of “equal wages for equal work” in the statutes of the European Union, he said.
Party leader Gábor Vona will kick off the campaign next Tuesday in Budapest before visiting 26-27 cities and meeting representatives of unions and other representative bodies, he said.
