Joint statement by the ITF, UNI and Deutsche Post DHL Group

13 Dec 2018
Press Release
The Global union federations, the International Transport Workers’ Federation ‘ITF’ and UNI Global Union ‘UNI’ and Deutsche Post DHL Group ‘DPDHL’ worked towards building a constructive and solution-oriented approach during 2018 by following the agreed procedure of the OECD protocol first established in July 2016.

Under the terms of the protocol the ITF, UNI and DPDHL met four times in 2018, including one with high-level representatives – the general secretaries and the DPDHL corporate board member of human resource.  The meetings and dialogue serve to further build trust and a sustainable relationship, as well as addressing labour relations issues around the world.

In addition, the parties encouraged improvements in the relationships on a regional and local level. For the first time the parties convened a joint visit to Panama in April 2018 to facilitate improved relationships at a local level in the Lat/Am region. The parties continue to work on building trust and sustainable relationships at local level across the globe.

At a high-level meeting hosted by the German national contact point of the OECD in October 2017, DPDHL, UNI and the ITF requested the protocol to be extended through to December 2019. On the agenda for the 2019 meetings, the parties agreed to explore expanding the content of the regular meetings to be more functional, constructive and a reference guide for industrial issues for all parties. In addition the ITF, UNI and DPDHL agreed to discuss and exchange views on the future of work, digitalisation and responsible supply chain standards.

Do you believe that Herpes has a permanent cure? My name is Antonio Jefferson Cole, I'm in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been spending lots of money weekly on buying the popular Valtrex and sometimes Acyclovir, to suppress my Herpes outbreaks as prescribed to me in the hospital. Anyone who has herpes can attest to this, with all the pains and embarrassing symptoms. Unfortunately, I have found out that those hospital recommended products are frequently not effective at taking care of the problem but rather make you spend all your money. DR.WATER herbal remedy will get to the root of the cause and cure you completely rather than suppress outbreaks with medication. And you will be happier, healthier, and outbreak free. He also has herbal remedies that can cure HIV, HPV, hepatitis and so on. He is the greatest of all herbal healers. His email is DRWATERHIVCURECENTRE@GMAIL.COM and his Whatsapp number: +2349050205019. You can contact him and get a permanent cure to your genital and oral Herpes or HIV AIDS or Lungs cancer or Alzheimer's disease.

Hello, i am Marcelo Paes Costa Junior, and i am from Rio, in Brazil. Let me give this testimony to the public about a great herbal doctor who helped me out with my own illness. I had HIV/AIDS for over 5 years and I was almost going to the end of my life due to the way my skin looked like. All I have in my mind is to give up, because life is not interesting to me any longer. One night, my sister ran to me that she found a doctor in the internet who can cure HIV/AIDS, i was not even interested because i never believed. She help me out on everything the doctor asked for, filled the treatment form for me and even used her own money to get the medicine for me. During one week of using the medicine, I started getting more stronger, my blood started to flow normally 4 to 5 days later, I start gaining Weight, before the 3rd week, my body started developing, my skin started coming up. After a month, I went for HIV test and I was tested negative. I’m so happy that I can say I’m not an HIV/AID patient again. if you have HIV/AID or Hepatitis, or Herpes or HPV or coronary artery diseases or any sickness please contact Dr.O.Water.

My name is Cyprienne Gueu, i was diagnosed with HIV in 2015, and since then my life was turned upside down. I even infected my husband with the virus, until i read a testimony from a woman about a healer who uses herbs to cure diseases like HIV, genital warts, herpes, Hepatitis, breast cancer , many more. And she dropped his email, which i used to contact him and told him about my problem, he assured me that he can heal me and told me all i need to do, after which he sent some herbal medicine to me in Montreal, where i was residing with my husband in Canada. He told i and my husband to take the medication for 3weeks which we did religiously. Now we are fully healed, we are now HIV negative. Even last week we went for a test again and it was all negative, thanks to the healer Dr'Water for saving our life. And i will advice any of you who needed help about this deadly virus or you want to boost your immune system against COVID-19, contact Dr'Water through his email: DRWATERHIVCURECENTRE@GMAIL.COM or Whatsapp: +2349050205019
