    April and May Bring Spring Marches



    Labor is teaming up with environmental groups and other allies for a number of important marches over the next several weeks. The March for Science on April 22 (Earth Day) aims to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments. Then, check out the People’s Climate March -- for climate, jobs and justice -- in a city near you on April 29. The season of resistance culminates with the May 1 General Strike on International Worker’s Day, when hundreds of thousands of workers will be on the streets. Join an action near you!


    Uzbek Activist Released, but Turkmen Monitor Still Imprisoned



    Uzbek rights activist Elena Urlaeva was detained on March 1, to prevent her from meeting with international labor observers, and confined to a psychiatric hospital against her will for 23 days. She was released after an international campaign for her freedom. Meanwhile, Alternative Turkmenistan News (ATN) reporter Gaspar Matalaev remains imprisoned on false charges of fraud in retaliation for his reporting on government-sponsored forced labor in Central Asia. You can sign a petition for his release here.


    Ecology and Human Rights in Seafood Supply Chains



    A new report from Waxman Strategies encourages environmental groups and labor rights organizations to work together on combating illegal practices in fishing that destroy ecosystems and fuel worker exploitation. Driving Ecological Sustainability in Fisheries by Integrating Human Rights Issues highlights the successes of NGO partnerships like the ILRF-led Thai Seafood Working Group in laying the groundwork for human rights reform and ecological conservation efforts.


    Seventeen Brands Take Transparency Pledge



    Our new report developed with Human Rights Watch and Clean Clothes Campaign, Follow the Thread: The Need for Supply Chain Transparency in the Garment and Footwear Industry, calls for companies to adopt the Apparel and Footwear Supply Chain Transparency Pledge. So far, seventeen brands have aligned with the pledge, agreeing to publish information identifying the specific factories that produce their goods. This information is key to addressing abusive working conditions and labor violations. Sign the petition calling on Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, Walmart, Primark and Armani to #GoTransparent and take the pledge.


    April 24th: 4th Anniversary of Rana Plaza Tragedy



    April 24th, 2017 will mark the 4th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse that killed over 1,100 garment workers. The past four years since this tragedy, known as the worst disaster in the history of the garment industry, have been marked by significant progress in Bangladesh factory safety, led by the Accord on Bangladesh Fire and Building Safety. If you're in Washington D.C., join us for a screening of Sramik Awaaz: Workers' Voices to commemorate the anniversary.

    Somalia: Stop attacks on journalists and other trade unionists




    In the past four years, the Federal Government of Somalia has been attacking the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ) and the Federation of Somali Trade Unions (FESTU), because these unions refused to be controlled by the government.

    The government disbanded union meetings of NUSOJ in Mogadishu, imposed non-union members as leaders of FESTU and NUSOJ, intimidated union leaders and members including arrest, travel restrictions, de-registered unions to make them illegal, sacked most senior judges of the country who made favourable rulings for the union in February 2016, and denied FESTU the right to represent workers in tripartite platforms.

    The Supreme Court of Somalia and the ILO supported the demand that the government recognise the internationally recognised leadership of NUSOJ and FESTU, and stop the attacks on the unions.

    Please take a moment to show your support for human rights in Somalia and demand an end to attacks on the country's independent trade unions:

    Also, Spanish unions are protesting at massive redundancies at OHL. Two unions affiliated to Building and Wood Worker's International (BWI) have launched an online campaign opposing the company's decision to make 554 workers redundant. Please support their campaign here. [Warning: that may be a very slow connection.]

    And finally, please -- share these campaigns with your friends, family and fellow union members.

    Thank you!
