Does the ETUC take account of the interests of workers in developing countries, while acting on behalf of those in Europe?
As one of the richest regions of the world, Europe has a responsibility to work for better working conditions and human rights outside its borders. At the same time, European workers have an interest in boosting pay and conditions in developing countries so as to avoid social dumping and protect their jobs. One way of doing this is to build up communication and exchange information with employees of multinational companies operating in the EU and elsewhere, so as to strengthen trade union solidarity and organisation outside Europe.
