ITUC targets "countries at risk"

The International Trade Union Confederation is focusing its trade union rights campaigning on what it terms “countries at risk” where the situation is particularly urgent. In Europe the three countries in this category are Georgia, Turkey and Belarus where the ITUC finds there to be serious infringements of trade union rights including intimidation and arrest of trade union activists, denial of or restrictions on the rights to organise, to strike and to be recognised for collective bargaining. The ITUC carries out an annual survey on the violation of trade union rights across the world and information on each country can be found on the ITUC website.
