The meeting of the ILNSS, which has had to be postponed several times due to the current health situation, will finally take place in Dijon (France) from the 23 to the 26 September 2021.

The thrust of our Network’s activities is to support union struggles throughout the world : statements and messages of support, economic support, sharing information in companies based in different countries, and so on. We have also decided that on our international meetings, but also during the periods between them, we shall also work on five main subjects : workers’ control and self-management ; migrants’ rights ; women’s rights and feminism ; anti-colonialism ; repression against unions and social movements. As with all union actions, this only make sense if we take into account our professional and sectoral situations, building a link between the workers’ daily experiences and exploitation at their workplaces.

Work plan for 2021, including the meeting at Dijon in September

Taking into account that travelling opportunities during this year’s first semester will remain uncertain, and considering the possibility of organising it during the second, the Network’s coordinating team proposes the following work-plan :

Virutal thematic meetings

 Women’s rights and feminism : 13 March.

 Self-management and workers’ control : 10 April.

 Repression : 8th May.

 Anti-colonialism : 22 May.

 Migrants’ rights, migrations : 12 June.
