Mikael Leyi´s address on the stance of SOLIDAR & SOLIDAR Foundation on the 13th edition of World Day for Decent Work.
"Dear friends, I am turning to you today, October 7th, on the World Day for Decent Work.
This 13th edition occurs in a time where millions of people are left behind, without a job, without an income, without any protection in the face of the ongoing economic, social and climate crisis.
Yet, this can and should be reverted!
Today, SOLIDAR therefore join our fellow unions worldwide to reiterate:
And it is high time that we work together as social, popular and environmental movements for a Just transition, that leaves no-one behind on our way to achieve the Sustainable development goals. We shall push for a new social contract based on these tenets together!
The recovery plans underway and funds made available must be the starting point. We have a chance to make this right now. For the people and for the planet, for workers everywhere! I hope you have a great Decent Work Day!"
Our partner FUNDIPAX has translated the Statement in Spanish - thank you!
