40,000 Eurocrats are threatening to strike over plans to increase their working week from 37.5 hours to 40 hours (just like the private sector), raise their retirement age from 58 (!! 65 would be generous, 67 realistic), and award a pay rise of 1.8% (at the same time that the EU is telling governments across the eurozone to adopt harsh austerity measures and public sector pay freezes). The unions are demanding more than twice as much as they have been offered,.
Go on, give us all somthing to laugh about. Walk out and watch as nothing happens.
