Information

8th ITUC General Council Resolution on the Rio+20 process
It states that 2011 will be a year for strong mobilisation of the trade union movement towards Rio+20.

Trade unions have three main proposals: a universal social protection floor, the creation of a tax on financial transactions and a decision on a global target of at least a 50% increase in green and decent jobs by 2015.

Unions will work hard in cooperation with other civil society groups to make Rio+20 a forum where bold decisions are taken to tackle inequity, promote development and boost green and decent jobs.
