ITUC 5th World Congress starts today in Australia

From 17 to 22 November, 1,000 delegates from 143 countries and 300 national trade union centres will debate the agenda for the world trade union movement for the next four years. PSI will hold a series of side events, including on the protection of whistleblowers, union tax campaigns and on funding a public, just and equitable transition of the economy.

Based on the draft statement, discussions will centre on the theme of a new social contract: climate-friendly jobs, workers’ rights, just wages, social protection, equality and inclusion.

Special forums will focus on lessons from global shocks, technology and impacts on work, an inclusive union movement, and climate and just transition.

The ITUC World Congress can be watched live on the website and followed via #ITUC22 on social media.
