The international seminar had union leaders participation from organizations in five continents. On Wednesday afternoon, some leaders were invited to expose union cooperation initiatives in their respective countries.
From CUT Antonio Lisboa, executive director, spoke about the terms of cooperation with other agencies, guided by the principles of solidarity and social justice.
The Central Union has currently cooperation projects on training and union communication with Angola, Cape Verde, Honduras, Chile, Paraguay and Haiti (CNTE and CUT). Currently, the CUT is organising a project in Mozambique for union organisation of domestic workers and health & safety training with African Portuguese speakers. The last one is the first project in partnership with the Brazilian Cooperation Agency and the ILO. “We still need the Brazilian government to establish clearer rules and objective, increasing the need for international cooperation,” stated Lisbon.
Others who poke about their experiences included Lee Induk, from FKTU Korean Central union; Rekson Silaban, KSBI central union Indonesia; Zanele Matebula, Cosatu trade union federation in South Africa; Maressa La Roux, CGSLB central union of Belgium, José da Costa KSTL central union of East Timor, and Bernardo Rojas, CUT-Autentica from Paraguay.
