Global Justice, Global Solidarity: The TUC's international development strategy 2011-2015
The TUC is today (Thursday 9 December) launching its new four year strategy for international development. Global solidarity, global justice sets out the TUC's vision and goals for 2011-2015.
This strategy will help us focus our efforts during the next five years on the issues, partners and countries where we can make most difference. The strategy is driven by our vision and goals, and underpinned by our principles. It will mainly be delivered through work on four priorities, although these will not preclude us from carrying out other work as necessary or reacting to new opportunities.
Our four priorities are:
- Enabling workers to build democratic and accountable unions, states and institutions
- Securing equality and social justice through the trade union movement
- Supporting vulnerable workers in improving their working lives
- Ensuring international trade and investment drive decent work
Our consultations on this strategy led to over 100 responses from British trade unions, global south partners, NGOs and others. We are grateful for their input, and that of TUC Aid trustees and TUC General Council members. All of these contributions have helped us refine our ideas and decide our priorities.
During the first few months of 2011, we will be talking to our British, international and global south partners as we develop our plans to implement this strategy. For more information contact Gemma Tumelty [email protected] 0207 467 1223
We hope that you will enjoy reading the strategy.
