WFTU to strengthen class-oriented TUs

The Athens-based World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) will further its trade union initiatives to strengthen class-oriented trade union movement worldwide as labour rights all over the world are under attack, according to its representative Alexandra Lymperi.

Ms. Lymperi, chief of the media department of the WFTU, who is here as a delegate at the national conference of the Centre of Indian Trade Union (CITU), told a press conference here on Friday that issues such as increasing tax concessions, flexible working hours, and migration of workers, among others, should be addressed by the trade unions.

The WFTU had been organising international action against corporate monopolies, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank. It was important for workers to be united under the trade unions, she said.
