A New Social Deal is essential to consolidate the Democracy and prevent the further strenghtening of the Far-Right in Europe by assuring dign existence to the workers, and to people in need. The New Deal must be done with the participation of the Trade Unions and the Civic Society expressing and representing workers interests.
