The conference will be held in Tunisia, the country of great success stories in trade union rights. The ITF support was always in the lead, they support the workers in the Arab World and globally. For me the ITF backed me up in all the difficult times. I ask everyone to participate with us even if they are not coming through Facebook and the ITF website. I am sure that the conference outcomes will be for the benefit of workers and to strengthen the unions in the Arab World.
