UN Rio+20 Summit Must Deliver on Jobs, Poverty and the Environment
The international labour movement formally tabled its proposals to the secretariat of the sustainable development summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2012.

?Governments must realise that unless there is a drastic change in the way the world is governed, there is no chance that social equity or environmental protection will be achieved,? said ITUC General Secretary Sharan Burrow. ?The trade union movement is ready to mobilise for a real transformation of production systems, for them to deliver decent work and prosperity while protecting natural resources for future generations?.
