UNI Global Union supports World Day of Social Justice
UNI Global Union, and its 20 million members, support the United Nations World Day of Social Justice and this year’s theme, “Preventing conflict and sustaining peace through decent work.”
UNI Global Union General Secretary Philip Jennings said, “UNI works every day in the cause of social justice because we understand that decent work is at the core of a peaceful and prosperous world. At a time of record levels of inequality, we must do everything we can to promote the rights of migrants and remove the barriers faced by people because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disablilty.”
The United Nations’ statement released to mark the World Day of Social Justice said, “The pursuit of social justice for all is at the core of our global mission to promote development and human dignity. The adoption by the International Labour Organization of the Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization is just one recent example of the UN system’s commitment to social justice. The Declaration focuses on guaranteeing fair outcomes for all through employment, social protection, social dialogue, and fundamental principles and rights at work.
