7 October 2013
The theme for this year is “Building workers’ Power”. It’s about organising members and grow our organisations so we are yet stronger and can support our members better.
While planning your events for 2013 you can join us via Twitter, Facebook and newsletter and make sure not to miss any vital information from us.
What is the ITUC ?
The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) is the main international trade union organisation, representing the interests of working people worldwide. We represent 175 million workers in 156 countries and territories and has 315 national affiliates.
What happened 2012 ?
What is the day about ?
Since 2008 the ITUC has been organising the World Day for Decent Work (WDDW) on 7 October. This is a day for mobilisation all over the world: one day when all the trade unions in the world stand up for decent work. Decent work must be at the centre of government actions to bring back economic growth and build a new global economy that puts people first.
No action is too big or too small for the World Day for Decent Work: whether be it a round table discussion, a huge demonstration, a protest letter, a flash mob action or something completely different.
