ETUC Women Workers Manifesto - Equality in the recovery

Women are at greater exposure to the consequences of the economic crisis resulting from the pandemic. This Recovery needs to put the achievement of equality at the centre.  We are calling for   1.

When women join together in their trade union they can bargain for a better deal, increased pay, more security, training, health and safety, a say over working hours, fairer promotions, more paid leave and a decent pension.

Climate change, energy supply, worker mobility and migration are among the issues that cannot be tackled by individual nations.
