International Trade Union Council General Council  moves  to adopt new membership rules

The 26th meeting session  of the ITUC General Council, on  16 – 18 May, announced that it has adopted a draft statement to be debated at the 5th ITUC World Congress.

The Council  said it agrees with the agenda and programme for the Congress, which will held  in Melbourne, Australia, 17 – 22 November this year.

The body said “The Council re-affirmed the gender parity requirements set out in the ITUC Constitution for the composition of delegations to the Congress and set a target for at least 15% of delegates to be young people.

Adding that “The draft Congress Statement, which elaborates the theme “A New Social Contract”, reiterates the ITUC’s commitment to peace, democracy and rights, and analyses three major and converging challenges to working people:

  1. Climate change.
  2. The COVID-19 pandemic and global health.
  3. Technology and digitalisation.
