"Global Union Movement Says Refugees Welcome", 5 December 2018

The global trade union movement stands with the world’s 68 million refugees. While on a visit to Malmö, Sweden, trade union delegates from around the world demonstrated their support for the equal treatment of refugees and migrants so people are not exploited.

“Trade unions stand again racism and xenophobia, and stand for migrants and refugees... We stand united against the forces that drive people to flee their homes. Further marginalising the world’s most vulnerable cannot be the answer. Refugees are welcome in our workplaces and our communities, and we demand the guarantee of equal treatment, including full protection and rights under labour law” said Sharan Burrow, General Secretary, ITUC...

The visit to Malmö was organised in the context of the 4th ITUC World Congress...

"Global Poll: Governments’ failure to address low wages and insecure jobs threatens trust in politics and democracy", 2 December 2018

Workers across the globe are struggling to make ends meet, believe their jobs are insecure and don’t believe their voices matter in politics according to a new global public opinion poll from the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC).

Sharan Burrow, General Secretary of the ITUC, said: “Governments are failing to respect workers, and they are failing to respect voters... Without action to raise wages and change the rules for working people, we put democracy at risk.”

Released at the opening of the 4th ITUC World Congress in Copenhagen...[t]he poll showed:

  •  59% of people in work are just about managing financially, struggling to make ends meet, or are not managing at all financially, often going without essentials or falling into debt.
  •  Nearly one in four (23%) people in work believe their job is insecure.
  •  Only 37% of people think their voice always or mostly matters in politics

... The poll was conducted 15 October – 6 November in Brazil, Bulgaria, Denmark, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Morocco, Portugal, the Philippines, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States.

  • A new social contract, where businesses including platform businesses are made to take responsibility for their workers, and a UN Business and Human Rights Treaty;
  • A Just Transition to sustainable economies to tackle climate change and keep temperature rises to 1.5 degrees or less; 
  • Reverse the trend of low wage growth and rising inequality through collective bargaining, increased minimum wages and social protection; and,
  • Close the gender pay gap, fight discrimination and racism and take forward action against gender based violence.

...The statement adopted by the ITUC World Congress included four pillars – on peace democracy and rights, regulating economic power, global shifts - just transitions and equality, which set out the ITUC agenda for the next four years....
