Sharan Burrow, ITUC General Secretary, said "The World Day for Decent Work is a day when working people, their unions and their supporters across the world mobilise for decent jobs for all with respect for workers’ rights. We are aiming to exceed last year’s total of 424 events in 74 different countries and press home the demands of working people and their families to governments, employers and the international institutions."
