Important updates on our international trade union solidarity work

In this newsletter you will find updates about the solidarity campaign and lobby work of Justice for Colombia, the partnership project we have with the Lesotho Congress of Democratic Unions, the support we hope to give to the Palestinian General Federation of Trade Unions through the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign beginning in 2010.

On page 7 you can read about the desperate employment conditions that garment workers, mostly women, are enduring and Congress' response to this by focusing on 'clean clothes campaign' with other Irish groups who share these concerns.

"The Guest Contributor" on page 10-11 is Jeroen Beirnaert, the coordinator of the ITUC's Global Alliance to combat Forced Labour and Trafficking. He writes about forced labour, the modern slavery in our world.
