Striving for a fairer workplace for dock workers

The ITF is supporting transport unions to tackle the key issues facing dockers today. From health and safety to job security, we are supporting our unions as they fight to make a difference. Thanks to global initiatives such as the maritime roundtable and the Global Network Terminals campaign, we’re building stronger unions and a safer, fairer workplace.
