This activity aimed at supporting PSI’s Global Tax Justice Campaign, providing tools to affiliate members to influence both national and global tax issues. It has contributed to stronger coalition-building with NGO allies and partners, integration of trade union issues and consolidation of joint campaigning opportunities. In addition, the activity is a building stone for more in-depth gender mainstreaming within PSI.
The workshop focused on:
Participants noted and committed to the following:
The group addressed the gender tax bias in their own country. Some participants had been faced with gender tax bias themselves – whereas others had already been engaged in campaigns. A strong link was made between how trade unions integrate gender policies beyond “traditional women’s issues” and that more efforts need to be made to implement gender mainstreaming across the board, as well as make unions more aware of the tax debate in general.
Participants were provided with methodological tools, analytical skills and a wealth of background information, while the link with their trade union work and issues was very much underlined and present throughout the process.
