The 27th IUF Congress, held in Geneva from August 29 to September 1, 2017, was the largest, most representative, and most participatory Congress in our history. Of the 518 participants from around the world, 339 official delegates took part in the work of the Congress - an increase of nearly 29% over 2012. All regions and sectors were strongly represented in a Congress marked by a high degree of enthusiasm, militancy and solidarity.


Huge support for McDonalds workers' first ever strike in the UK

E-mail Print

Today, on US Labour Day holiday, McDonalds’ fast food workers in Cambridge and Crayford (South-East London) are set to go for the first ever strike in the UK to coordinate action against the fast food giant with allies around the world.

Organised by EFFAT‘s affiliate Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU), McDonalds’ workers are demanding: (I) 10 £ an hour minimum wage; (II) An end to zero hours contracts; (III) Recognition of their trade unions.

In April 2017, McDonalds had promised workers guaranteed-hours contracts to all employees who wanted them. However, the BFAWU claims that workers at most stores were told nothing about this until the strike was announced. Now, workers and BFAWU rightly want this as a done deal which would represent a major victory for the some 80,000 workers at McDonald’s, and a successful example of workers’ organizing.

Workers to vote for better wages, job security and respect at Radisson Hotel Kathmandu

E-mail Print

On August 18, 350 workers at Carlson Rezidor's Radisson Hotel Kathmandu in Nepal will vote for union representation in collective bargaining. The IUF-affiliated Nepal Independent Hotel Workers' Union (NIHWU) has won significant gains for hotel workers over the past 37 years, including improved wages and benefits, job security, and actively pushing for implementation of the industry-wide agreement on 10% service charge in hotels, restaurants and fast food so that it is fairly distributed to all workers.

NIHWU represents hotel and tourism workers in various government and tripartite meetings, and promotes the need for sustainable jobs as part of sustainable tourism. NIHWU is active in the IUF Global Housekeeping Campaign and Climate Justice for Tourism Workers.


Rights abuses at luxury hotel in Manila!

E-mail Print

The IUF-affiliated Peninsula Employees Union has filed for industrial action at the upscale hotel in response to management's aggressive attacks on working conditions and basic workplace rights.

Management's refusal to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement in good faith has provoked the threat of a major industrial dispute, compounding tensions arising from ongoing harassment and disciplinary action against union leaders.
