The objective of the campaign is to achieve our resolution for women’s representation that was adopted at the Nagasaki Congress in order to improve the gender balance.
The campaign "40for40" is aiming to get signatures from a minimum of 40 union leaders in the 4 regions of UNI Global Union in support of the UNI plan to ensure that at least 40% of seats are held by each gender in all UNI decision-making structures and in their own organizations.
Breaking the Circle of Violence
The Equal Opportunities office at UNI launched the Break the Circle! campaign against gender violence. As gender inequality causes gender violence, and violence only increases inequality, help us Break the Circle!
The campaign objective is not only to reflect on gender violence and its causes but also to provide action tools to the true protagonists of this change: men and women who, day in day out, struggle for a fairer and more equitable world for all.
Is a campaign that aims to recognize the work and effort of thousands of women workers who fight actively to improve the quality of life in our societies, to make it fairer and more equal. It aims to become a source of inspiration for other women who wish to participate by becoming activists.
In 2013 the UNI Department for Equal Opportunities launched a Mentoring Program targeting women from the four regions of UNI Global Union.
This program aims to encourage young women trade unionists to get involved in the international trade union work.
Women and men have the right to receive equal remuneration for work of equal value. Not only should men and women get equal pay for doing the same or a similar job, but also when they do work that is completely different but which, based on objective criteria, is of equal value.
Equal Pay is a recognized human right to which all men and women are entitled and it is vital for the creation of quality jobs. By recognizing women and the vital role they play in both employment markets and economic growth, we are providing not only greater profitability to the economy but we are also promoting social justice and equal opportunities.
