Rosa Pavanelli is General Secretary of the global union federation Public Services International. She was elected at PSI’s World Congress in November 2012 and was re-elected for a second mandate in November 2017.

On this May Day, PSI calls on governments to invest in their people, reject austerity and further cuts to public services and value public emergency service (PES) workers, whom in most cases are denied fundamental rights, whether because of essential services legislation or for being grouped under what is sometimes known as uniformed services, which include firefighters and police.
