ITUC releases publications on trade unions and SDGs

International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), CPDE’s focal point for the Labour sector, has published two important materials on the subject of trade unions and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The 2019 edition of A Trade Union Take on the SDGs compiles the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) that 17 trade unions in 14 countries have done of their respective government’s plan on the national implementation of the SDGs.

The M&E covered the governments of Argentina, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Chad, Chile, Colombia, France, Ghana, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Mongolia, Tanzania and Venezuela.

ITUC has also released an advocacy brief on how trade unions’ international cooperation programmes support the SDGs and the Development Effectiveness Agenda. The material presents examples of how trade union programmes contribute to the 2030 Agenda by drawing on the SDGs as well as the Development Effectiveness Principles.

The programmes addressed key sustainable development areas such as labour rights, social protection, gender equality, climate justice, business accountability, social dialogue, and industrial relations. In engaging in these domains, trade unions show commitment to their role as development actors at local, regional, and global levels.
