Haiti:The Trade Union Response

Colleagues,

The earthquake in Haiti demands an unequivocal global, humanitarian response - and as ever the trade union movement is at the forefront.

The ITUC has mobilised an international effort to respond to the disaster and is working closely with trade unionists in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. See here for more information: www.ituc-csi.org/haiti-earthquake-major.html.

As with other media organisations The Guardian is provising first class, first hand accounts of the aid response in Haiti and is providing details of how to provide financial and other assistance.

The Guardian live blog is at: www.guardian.co.uk/news/blog/2010/jan/19/haiti-earthquake-updates

Please continue to follow developments, particularly on the trade union front via the ITUC, and do all that you can to provide assistance.

Cheers

Ian
