The ACTRAV Helpdesk offers advice and information and makes available workable tools and materials to assist trade unions regarding how they manage their responses to the financial and economic crisis and uphold workers’ rights.
The ACTARV Helpdesk will be a the service of the International Trade Union Confederation, the World Federation of Trade Unions, the Organization of African Trade Union Unity, the Global Union Federations, and national trade union centers.
The Helpdesk will also constitute a depository centre of knowledge and materials relevant for the trade union response to the crisis. Through the ACTRAV Helpdesk trade unions would also be able to deepen their understanding of the failure of the free-market globalization phenomenon and call for a new sustainable – economic, social and ideological – paradigm that favors the working men and women throughout the world.
