For the past 12 years, ITF affiliates have participated in the ITF campaign for International Women’s Day on the 8th of March by organising practical activities to campaign for and secure women transport workers’ rights and increase their visibility and participation in the union movement. The ITF Women’s Committee is once again calling on affiliates to mark the day.
This year’s campaign To support your activities the ITF has re-produced the campaign posters and new stickers for this year. The materials carry the slogan, ‘Strong Unions Need Women’. The materials reflect the ITF’s Organising Globally campaign which focuses on unions growing through organising, especially those campaigns that target women.
