ITF young workers summer school, June 2013
The second ITF summer school specifically for young workers was held on 24-28 June in Washington DC. The week-long event provided an opportunity for young activists to get together, network, and develop skills in international campaigns and solidarity. Now in its fourteenth year, the summer school has reached over 500 participants from all transport sectors since it began. This year, 40 participants from 24 different countries were hosted by ITF affiliate, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) at the William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center, Maryland, USA. You can watch the Labor's Fountain of Youth film or read the online news story to find out more.
The ITF transport toolkit is a resource to help affiliates tackle the challenges of industrial restructuring in which international financial institutions, particularly the World Bank, are involved. We have developed the toolkit in partnership with Public World and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Foundation. Read Alana Dave, ITF education officer, talking about the transport toolkit.
