Global Day of Action for the Right to Strike

Date: 
18 February, 2015
Time: 
09.00 - 17.00
Location: 
Global
Event type: 
All too often, the right to strike is denied to public sector workers, due to broad definitions of essential services and limitations to collective bargaining or the right to organize, while some governments commit outright violations of human and fundamental workers’ rights.

The conflict on the right to strike and the crisis of ILO’s supervisory mechanism persists and this is of great concern to PSI and its affiliates. In March 2015, the ILO Governing Body has to take a decision on the resolution of this conflict. If no agreement can be reached, PSI supports the referral to the International Court of Justice for an advisory opinion on the matter, as foreseen in the ILO Constitution.

The ITUC General Council adopted a resolution calling for a Global Day of Action on 18th February 2015.

PSI calls on all its affiliates to participate in this Global Day of Action, in cooperation with the ITUC and other global unions to defend and promote the right to strike.
