Second Congress of the ITUC held in Vancouver

Sisters Louisette Hinton and Diane Wood were elected official observers representing CURC and the BC Forum to attend the 2nd Congress of the ITUC which was held in Vancouver from 21 to 25 June 2010.

The conference theme was “Now the people of the crisis-global justice.” There were about two thousand delegates and guests from around the world.

Several speakers and speakers from all over the world came to talk about what is happening in their countries at the global economic crisis, but also policies to address them.  Other issues included the question of how the international union movement should evolve over the years to come.

On Wednesday afternoon there was a rally outside the Convention. Several Canadian and international delegates took the floor to denounce the G8-G20 which were held in Ontario.  As you can see in the photo, we have a duty to properly represent our pensioners waving the banner of BC Forum.
