Become a voluntary correspondent or translator for the Global Coca-Cola Alliance!
Every day, thousands of small steps happen in building our global union. A new local is being formed somewhere, a collective grievance is solved, an improvement is won for the CBA. On the other hand, new questions and problems arise. And sometimes, you’d really like to share a story which is just great fun.
Coke workers around the world want to know your stories! And they can find out at iuf.org/ccww – if you let them know and help them to communicate with each other: Become a voluntary correspondent or translator for the Global Coca-Cola Alliance today!
We invite union activists who want to tell these stories to write them up and publish on the www.iuf.org/ccww website, and thus become voluntary correspondents to the website. Obviously, this should be in line with the union’s publication policy.
Therefore, voluntary correspondents need confirmation from their unions.
We strongly encourage Alliance affiliates to name us at least one voluntary correspondent.
The unions contact persons for the Alliance, editors of your Coke Union bulletin, or active union member that are ready to take on a special task all can be named voluntary correspondents.

Tasks and access rights of voluntary correspondents
Voluntary correspondents will be asked to regularly think about stories they would like to contribute to the site, and either send them to IUF Coca-Cola coordinators (look up the list of coordinators at ---), or put them up on the site themselves.
In order to do this, they will be granted special access rights to the www.iuf.org/ccww site, which enables them to put stories up.
A short manual is available for voluntary correspondents.
Voluntary correspondents should make sure that
- stories are true and reliable
- stories are written in the interest of the affiliate(s) concerned
- stories, if put up in local languages, should have a translation into one of the IUF’s official languages.
The IUF reserves the right to remove stories at the request of affected affiliates or when they are violating the website’s publication principles.
We want the stories on the website to be available to Coca-Cola union members all over the world. However, in order to cover as many languages as possible – we need your help!
We are looking for voluntary translators, who could take up assignments to translate website news.
If you know at least two languages very well (preferably one of them English), and want to support the union movement internationalizing – help us getting www.iuf.org/ccww translated into your local language.
TASKS AND ACCESS RIGHTS OF VOLUNTARY TRANSLATORS
Voluntary Translators will be regularly informed about articles that are up for translation and asked if they can take up the assignment to translate. In order to be able to do so, they will be granted specific access rights to the site.
News items, and thus translations assignment, normally are not longer than 1-2 pages.
A short manual is available for voluntary translators.
Voluntary translators will always be free to take on the assignment or turn it down when it is inconvenient for you at that moment. However when taking up an assignment, they will be responsible for translating fully, truly, and without changing the sense of the original article. Only union activists with good language skills should volunteer to translate.
The IUF reserves the right to remove incorrect translations from the website.
We strongly encourage Alliance affiliates to name us at least one voluntary translator.
