The IUF was represented at the inaugural conference of the Egyptian Democratic Labour Congress (EDLC), 24-26 April 2013. The objectives of the EDLC are to win a new labour law that protects freedom of association and promotes collective bargaining, gain recognition of independent unions, fight corruption and improve the economic conditions of workers. The EDLC supports the dismissed Cadbury/Mondelez union leaders in their fight for their jobs and to have their union recognised and respected.
