The Trade Union International (TUI) of Public Service and Allied workers (TUI PS&A) is convening its XIV International Congress in Bogota, Colombia on the 21st - 23rd November 2023 and calls all WFTU affiliated and friendly unions of the public service and allied to take part of this opportunity by joining the discussions and helping in finding long lasting solutions to the challenges facing them as public servants, the entire workers under the banner of the class-oriented trade union, the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) even those who are outside the fold and the working class in general.
Critical to the discussions of the congress, are the following issues:
Indeed, TUI is meeting in its international congress at the time where workers are faced miseries, pains and suffocations as a result of Neoliberal policies of austerity by governments, onslaughts by employers undermining collective bargaining, eroding workers rights, poor pay and privatising public service. These government policies, employers and imperialists are placing profit over people and subjecting those who are at the point of service - workers - to worse conditions and poverty never experienced before.
The XIV International Congress of the Trade Unions of Workers in Public Service and Allied is a platform to analyse the situation the public sector workers all over the world are facing and also to define actions towards the organization and their unified action.
