Since 1907, on the frontlines of the struggle for economic and social justice.

We are the workers who
make society happen.

We are the Global Union Federation of Workers in Public Services.

We are your nurses, firefighters and emergency responders. We collect your recycling and rubbish, we keep your water running, we make sure the lights stay on. We are your librarians and frontline public service staff. We fight for quality public services for all.

Next week will be an important time for PSI affiliates as the 112th ILC begins. A PSI trade union delegation, including representatives from Australia, Argentina, the Philippines, and the UK, will work closely with the Workers Group to include the voice of public service workers in this discussion that will inform the future ILO Convention and Recommendation on Biological Hazards.

We do not want health workers to become dead heroes. And we need as many health workers as possible to be alive and healthy to keep up the good work they are doing.
