Brussels, 25th July 2017

In Union Syndicale we value the cohesion and solidarity between the different sections of our trade union in the EU institutions. This close cooperation maximises the support we can deliver to protect staff interests.

Above all, solidarity means mutual support to individual cases. There are moments in life where we need to act together to protect the colleagues in need.

Union Syndicale was recently informed about the story of a colleague affected by a lethal cancer which required a very expensive experimental therapy which was not reimbursed under the joint sickness insurance scheme. Union Syndicale Brussels provided a financial contribution, and we invite colleagues to support the work of the Cancer-Support association for similar cases (CANCER-SUPPORT@ec.europa.eu / www.cancer-support.eu/events)
