This July, the G8 will be meeting in Japan. The TUC is calling on trade unionists to make their voice heard by signing up to the “tanabata” action, which will send four key messages to world leaders on aid, climate change, health and education.
You can make your voice heard online at http://www.tuc.org.uk/international/tuc-14826-f0.cfm or you can do it in Second Life TM – see how at http://www.tuc.org.uk/international/tuc-14871-f0.cfm

More detailed policy asks are set out in the Global Call to Action Against Poverty common position (see www.tuc.org.uk/tuc-14909-f0.cfm) or the trade union-specific demands of the Global Unions at www.tuac.org/en/public/e-docs/00/00/02/30/document_doc.phtml
