World Federation of Trade Unions 75th Anniversary

Congratulations to the World Federation of Trade Unions on its 75th Anniversary

The Workers Party’s Trade Union Section has congratulated the World Federation of Trade Unions on the occasion of its 75th Anniversary.

WFTU was forged in the difficult conditions following the end of the Second World War. Its foundation was associated with the defeat of fascism and a recognition of the need to organise and build an international trade union movement on clear class grounds.

This anniversary takes place in circumstances where workers across the world face many problems, including precarious employment, attacks on social and labour rights, a lack of housing for workers and their families, privatisation, the underfunding of the health and social care system (which has been further exposed in the conditions of the pandemic), the challenges posed by climate change and where the world remains threatened by increasing imperialist aggression and war.
