International Trade Unions unite to celebrate 60 years of UN Commission on the Status of Women

Trade union women from all over the world will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the UN Commission on the Status of Women taking place in New York March 14-24 this year.  For more information, check out the Organising for Women’s Social and Economic Empowerment by 2030 website.

In their Joint Statement to the UNCSW60, four international trade union confederations (ITUC, EI, PSI, ITF) call for "concerted State action to eliminate the sexual division of labour, which underpins the gender pay gap, and to end all gender bias around legislation and practices in job evaluation and work compensation."
