PSI and its affiliated unions, as well as its women's committees, which have the aim of guiding action for gender equality within our organisation, are convinced that equality will not be possible without a profound change in the sexual division of labour, the fundamental axis of which is care. In accomplishing this mandate, PSI is working closely with feminist, human rights, and tax justice organisations to build a global movement in support of the call for rebuilding the social organisation of care as a way out of the care crisis, which has been made worse by the pandemic.
Our joint Manifesto has become a living political document and statement in permanent public debate, finding new areas of expansion that could even lead to new ‘Rs’ outside the five originally proposed.
This trade union guide is for union leadership and women’s committees of PSI-affiliated unions. It will be particularly relevant for unions representing care workers.
The guide is made up of this advocacy guide and an activity workbook.
