The Global Labour Institute (GLI) in cooperation of the ILO workers’ group (ACTRAV) is organising a study visit during May 2014 from 5th to 9th May 2014.

The study visit offers an opportunity for a mixed trade union delegation to visit the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Global Union Federations (GUF) in Geneva. The visit will explore important international issues and the sustained effort to develop and secure workers’ rights in the UK and around the world as well as see at close quarters the work of the ILO and the GUFs.

Trade unions are invited to send a delegation.

The syllabus contains elements of learning about the ILO but crucially has a strong strand relating to unions ‘organising globally’ and a practical focus on developing strategies for defending and enhancing workers’ rights.

The study visit is likely to cost  £1,500 per participant. This would include 6 nights accommodation in a good hotel. It would not include flights and other travel costs to Geneva and back. Delegates would be expected to travel to Geneva on Sunday 4th May 2013 and return on Saturday 11th May.

Younger (under 40 years old) trade union members are encouraged to participate, though we appreciate some unions may identify excellent participants who are older.

For further information please contact Joe Holly at GLI.
