    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, MARCH 14 - Luca Visentini, general secretary of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), said seven pan-European trade unions representing millions of European workers will support protests on Friday against climate change.

    A youth movement organised by Greta Thunberg has planned 727 separate protest actions for Friday across Europe.

    On Friday, the seven unions will hang a banner in front of the International Trade Union House in Brussels reading "No Jobs on a Dead Planet - Workers Support Climate Action".

    The seven unions include, among others, European workers in energy, construction, services, food, tourism, and transport.

    "The unions strongly support the call by youth to urgently and more ambitiously face the topic of climate change," Visentini said. The movement calls for respecting the Paris Agreement as well as reaching "zero emissions" by 2050.(ANSAmed).
