PSI is pleased to convene the first PSI Global Local and Regional Government Workers’ Network Meeting that will be held on 19 September 2016 in Brussels, Belgium. This will be followed by the EPSU Local and Regional Government Standing Committee on 20 September 2016, enabling PSI affiliates from other regions to take part as observers. Both events will take place in Room B at the International Trade Union House (ITUH), 5, Boulevard du Roi Albert II, 1210 Brussels, Belgium from 8:30 to 18:00.
This meeting aims to:
- Review and assess global developments and ongoing affiliate and PSI work in the Local and Regional Government Sector (LRG);
- Identify common key global sectoral challenges and priorities, as well as good practices to share and disseminate;
- Stepping stones towards a strong sectoral network of PSI LRG in line with PSI Durban Congress Resolution 34;
- Review progress, input and update the LRG work plan for 2016-17 approved in the November 2015 EB and discuss LRG preparations for the PSI Congress;
- Launch the PSI Global Local and Regional Government (Municipal) Workers’ Network and establish an ongoing global communication and consultation network for the sector.
