‘Decent Work: hemispheric agenda of decent and social dialogue’ – Barbados participates at Trade Union conference via CTUSAB
The Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados (CTUSAB), accepted an invitation to attend the 5th International Conference and 7th National Conference of Força Sindical held in São Paulo, Brazil, 22-26 July, 2013.
It was the first time that CTUSAB participated in such a Conference at the invitation of its Latin American counterparts.
The Conference addressed a number of topical subjects and was attended by delegates from thirty-four countries which included representatives from several international trade union organizations.
Barbados was included on the panel which discussed the topic of ‘Decent Work: hemispheric agenda of decent and social dialogue‘.
This topic was significant in the context that it was a follow-on to the discussion on Social Dialogue which was one of the main subjects addressed at the recently concluded 102nd International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
