TUC Aid Iraqi Unions Appeal

The TUC has always been internationalist, working with unions throughout the world for social justice. In particular the TUC has played a key role in advancing workers’ rights in Europe and making the case for social Europe. We are affiliated to the world trade union body, the ICFTU and the European TUC - both of which maintain up to date links to unions throughout the world.

TUC Strategic Framework Partnership Arrangement Report
In July 2006, the TUC signed a three-year Strategic Framework Partnership Arrangement (SFPA) with DFID with the aim to increase the engagement of UK unions with DFID and build individual union capacity to internationalise their agenda. The project is now approaching the end of its first year. It has created a lot of interest and since the last report is continuing to progress very well. Areas of recent progress include: the successful application of the first four unions to the International Development Learning Fund; a TUC Conference which highlighted the need for and best practice examples of unions and NGOs working together on development issues; the publication of a slave and forced labour fact file and poster; and the holding of an introduction to development training course for TUC tutors and union officers and tutors.
