Trade Unions World Day for Decent Work

7 October 2010: Trade unions across the world mobilised on 7 October to tackle the global economic and employment crisis and demand fundamental reform of the world economy.

There are three central demands for economic recovery:

  • Growth and decent jobs, not austerity, are essential to beating the crisis and ending poverty;
  • Quality public services must not be slashed; and
  • The financial sector must pay for the damage it has caused.
