EU officials go on strike ahead of EU budget summit

EU officials went on strike on Tuesday to protest against potential cuts in their salaries and pensions. The protest came only two days before European leaders are due to meet in Brussels to agree on the next 7-year EU budget. 'We are here because at the end of the week, the Council will decide the budget for the European Union and we are afraid that some cuts will really put in danger the capacity of the European Union to stand for the principle, for the citizens and for its policies', chairman of the Center Staff Committee Cristian Sebastiani said.
