ITUC’s Freedom Report

This Freedom Report and its case studies remind us of the critical role unions play in opposing conflict, authoritarianism, oppression and exclusion.

The report includes case studies from:

  • In Colombia, unions have been at the forefront of decades of struggle for peace and social justice.
  • In Northern Ireland, the trade union movement has long been a motor for peace and overcoming division and sectarianism.
  • In Myanmar, the unions continue their longstanding peace and democracy struggle in the most difficult and dangerous circumstances under a ruthless military dictatorship.
  • In Tunisia, the UGTT and others were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their work to build a post-dictatorship country with a new constitution. A commitment that remains just as strong as the country faces new challenges.
