8 August 2019 -- tom.myers.478

This week marks the 74th anniversary of the atomic bomb attacks of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The attack killed more than 210,000 people, and left devastating health consequences for many more.

“On the 74th remembrance of this horrific attack, we reaffirm UNI’s commitment to peace and the abolition of nuclear weapons. This kind of indiscriminate death and destruction should never be unleashed again,” said Christy Hoffman. ”We stand with the people of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and the world in demanding an end nuclear arms—especially in this time of growing insecurity and tension.”


After questionable court delays, Albanian National Union of Contact Centers (Solidarity) wins legal recognition

24 July 2019 -- Richard Elliott

After a number of suspicious delays by the Albanian court, the National Union of Contact Centers, or “Solidarity” (Sindikata Kombëtare e Qendrave të Kontaktit, “Solidariteti”) was legally recognized as workers’ representative in the fast-growing call center industry there.

Workers filed papers with the Albanian courts in February to establish their union, but until now, their application was met with unnecessary information requests and other stall-tactics that the union believed violated ILO conventions regarding freedom of association and local labor standards.
