Unions Need Global Solidarity
Updated On: Oct 09, 2013
Oct. 9, 2013 | U.S. LABOR | …Unfair trade agreements have gutted American manufacturing and other industries…Multinational corporations have never been bigger and more influential in Washington than they are today. Companies like Wal-Mart and McDonald's are multiplying, as are concerns about fair wages and working conditioned. Big Teamster employers like UPS, First Student, ABInBev and many others also have a global reach and as big business becomes more international, labor must also keep pace by coordinating and partnering with other unions on a worldwide scale. What is needed is a beefed-up global labor presence where unions work together on behalf of all workers. Agreements like the one I signed last month on behalf of the Change to Win coalition with an 8 million-member labor federation in Brazil called UGT are the future of the union movement.  Read IBT General President Hoffa's column at Huffington Post.
