Political Resolution | IndustriALL Global Union’s II Congress – Unions For Trade Justice

Political Resolution | IndustriALL Global Union’s II Congress

It is the firm conviction of IndustriALL that all working women and men have the right to a fair distribution of the fruits of their labour. We must strive to build a global community in which power and opportunity are shared. We demand human rights for everyone, and the right to live in dignity, safety, peace and solidarity, free from prejudice and injustice.

In the face of sustained attacks on the right to freedom of association from capital and governments, increasing union membership and bargaining coverage continues to be a major challenge for the global trade union movement. IndustriALL is the global union representing industrial workers, and as such is a major
force in global solidarity, taking up the fight for better working conditions and trade union rights around the world. We are an organizing and campaigning organization that commits to stand with and lead workers in the fight for rights, fairness, dignity and justice everywhere.

Meeting in Rio de Janeiro on 5-7 October 2016, the second congress of IndustriALL Global Union resolves to adopt this political resolution as a complement to the Action Plan 2016-2020 that sets out IndustriALL’s five key strategic goals.
