world federation of trade unions


Dear Colleagues,

World Federation of Trade Unions

I am writing to inform you that at the June 2013 Statutory Meeting of the Council of Executives it was decided to seek affiliation to the World Federation of Trade Unions and that this process is now underway.

The decision taken was as follows:

“That we affiliate to the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) and seek to facilitate a meeting between the ITF General Secretary Steve Cotton and the transport section of the WFTU to help facilitate closer working between transport unions. In addition we agree to take part in a joint anti – privatisation rally and demo at some point in 2014. Finally we place an article in the RMT news explaining this decision”.

I will keep you informed of any developments.

Yours sincerely

Bob Crow

General Secretary
