Right now, many of us are unable to go to our regular workplaces. Our frontline workers take enormous risks every day. The global economy is in free-fall and never before are our unions needed more than they are now.
The focus of the pandemic response is rightly on containment and mitigation and supporting the health and care workers who are on the front line, and those in many other vital sectors. The spread of the virus is being fought in every workplace, everywhere in the world.
The antidote to this crisis is in the solidarity that is the lifeblood of trade unions, throughout history and today.
On 1 May, we salute the workers in health, care and other frontline sectors whose work is essential to saving lives and providing vital products and services. We are putting the safety for health and workers first, no one will be left behind. We celebrate solidarity and unity and we meet online!
After the parade we meet at the concert Sounds of Solidarity, live and online. Join from 19.00:
