A training for NIS unionists on the IIs and role of the unions was organised in Baku, Azerbaijan, 13-14 of November, to
• Inform trade unions of the latest developments in IFI programmes and policies in their region. • Empower trade unions to utilize a variety of strategies to engage and challenge IFI programs and policies in their countries and to defend their members’ rights, and workers’ rights in general, against anti-labour IFI policies. • Provide unions with an opportunity to share and collaborate on strategies with one another, and through coordination with the ITUC-PERC, relevant GUFs, and Global Unions Washington Office.
The training was conducted by Molly McCoy, Global Unions Washington Office, and supported by the ITUC Solidarity Fund and the ILO-Moscow Office.
