Basic Trade Union Education Seminar

For national centers and fledgling labour movements in newly established countries, it is important to foster a common awareness within the organization of the basics of trade unions, such as why trade unions are necessary, how to organize free, democratic and independent trade unions, and the methods of collective bargaining and concluding labour agreements.

The seminars, which have the principal objective of strengthening and consolidating the organization, consist mainly of lectures and group discussions on basic education, such as the role and necessity of unions, union rules, union's vision and mission and specific targets for their achievement, the organizational structure, immediate issues, and the introduction of women's committee and youth committee activities.
