Wars, inequality, COVID-19, unequal access to vaccines, militarization of the world, gender-based violence, climate crisis, destruction of biodiversity, unchecked race for profits, accelerating financialization of the economy, weakening of public services, retreat of democracy, intolerance, racism, homophobia and transphobia: the snapshot of the world appears very bleak at the beginning of 2022.
However, on this International Women’s Day, March 8, 2022, we want to spread a positive message of hope, to give ourselves a gift to celebrate our progress in our work on equality and the fight against all forms of discrimination. We are therefore pleased to launch the second edition of the All for One = One for All guide (available in English, French and Spanish), 15 years after the release of the path-breaking first edition.
- All for One = One for All is ours, and it is a resource for all of us
- Built from our analyses, testimonies and experiences of the last few years, All for One = One for All is the story of our struggles
- Focused on action steps going forward, All for One = One for All also equips us with key arguments to make progress on the long road to equality
Sue Longley, the IUF’s first woman General Secretary stated, “All for One = One for All shows that inclusive unions equal strong unions that can represent the working class in all our diversity. Solidarity and collective power remain the best bulwark against the evils we are fighting today and the strongest foundation for the new world we are building.”
The IUF wishes to recognize all the contributors to this Guide including Georgia Montague-Nelson of the Global Labour Institute as well as the financial contributions from Kommunal, U2U and 3F.
