UNI has negotiated over 50 global agreements with multinational companies to secure and enforce the rights of workers throughout their global operations.
These agreements are a critical tool to realizing the right to organize and collectively bargain—free from fear or employer interference. They are especially important where local management and governments routinely ignore these rights and are vital in environments where norms are anti-union.
In recent years, global agreements have expanded in scope to include issues such as maternity leave, to the right to disconnect, policies to end discrimination and gender-based violence, remote work, as well as health and safety.
All of our global agreements build worker power to change the rules of the game in the global labour market and win justice and equality for working people.
