Dairy affiliates met to strengthen the work of the Dairy Division at the 4th IUF Dairy Conference held in Cape Town, South Africa on May 24-26.

The volatility of dairy commodity markets, trade liberalization, the growth of precarious work, gender inequality and low wages and rights abuses in dairy supply chains, all contribute to insecure work and sector instability throughout the world.

Participants committed to increase their political activity to agitate for greater regulation in employment and in dairy markets to build stability and security.

Affiliates pledged to increase their efforts in building international union alliances within trans national dairy companies, organize more workers into unions and to share information on collective bargaining and organizing successes.
