Petition asking the European Parliament for the Right
to Work to be applied, supporting a further European Citizens’ Initiative
Every European Citizen has the right to work. Without
having proper access to work they do not have the full dignity of citizens. Among
other things, the right to work refers to the creation of jobs, putting an end
to unpaid internships and underpaid jobs.
We fight for the right to work to be applied,
according to Article 6º of the Treaty of the European Union; Article 2º, paragraph 3 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union; 15° and 31° of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European
Union; Article 23° of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Articles 6°
and 7° of Part III of the International
Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which was signed and ratified
by all the EU Member States.
With the support of your signatures,
we will ask the European Parliament to guarantee that these rights will be applied in
all EU Member States. We must stop this situation in which the citizens are
deprived ofwhat are basic rights.
