Tens of thousands of EU civil servants are expected to go on strike on February 5th, two days before a scheduled EU summit in Brussels, according to French media reports conveyed by Euronews. Workers from three unions are expected to decline doing their jobs that day in protest of expected budget cuts. The move will deepen concerns that the EU is insufficiently robust to survive the combination of politically-driven euroskepticism in countries such as the UK and economically-driven austerity measures throughout the Union.
