ITUC Global Rights Index 2018: Democratic space shrinks and unchecked corporate greed on the rise

Dear Colleagues,

The yearly index chronicling the health of the global labour movement from the ITUC is just out:

The index is a rich source of data depicting a range of rogue states (including both the UK, US etc) and the many ways in which workers' basic rights are denied. A particularly worrying aspect of the latest index is the correlation between deteriorating civil space to challenge infringements (Turkey being a critical example) allied to the worsening of civil, political and human rights.

The index carries stories of hope also, for example, from countries across Latin America. These are important, as they provide hope in a difficult global context.

Take the time to read the latest index, and discuss the headline details with sister/fellow activists.

In Solidarity
