Travailleurs Migrants

Le soutien des travailleurs migrants reste essentiel car ils reçoivent des salaires bas et ne sont pas couverts par la législation sociale et professionnelle.


La mobilisation globale pour des conditions de vie et de travail décentes pour tous les travailleurs employés dans le cadre des méga-événements sportifs est essentielle.


La signature de nos messages de protestation à des gouvernements antidémocratiques ou à des sociétés anti-syndicales aidera les syndicalistes dans de nombreux pays car ils continuent de faire l'objet d'un emprisonnement, d'un licenciement et d'une discrimination.


Encore trop de multinationales fonctionnent sans respecter les normes internationales du travail et de nombreux gouvernements sont seulement intéressés à attirer des investissements.
