Solidarity with transport unions in the Arab world

The ITF Arab world regional office was opened in 2004, and represents more than 35 unions in the Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf States. The ITF’s presence in the Arab World transport sector has had a huge positive impact for the unions, bringing a region where union agreements were scarce into a new era. Transport unions in the Arab World now collectively bargain, defend workers’ rights and stand in solidarity with other members of the ITF’s global family.

Our regional office is in Amman, Jordan.
