The delegation of the Federation of trade unions of Kazakhstan takes part in the 18th Congress of the General Italian Confederation of labour

Chairman of the Federation of trade unions of Kazakhstan Bakhytzhan Abdirayim takes part in the international conference on the theme: “The Future of European and International Trade Unions”, organized in the framework of the XVIII Congress of the Italian General Conference of Labour (CGIL) in the city of Bari (Italy).

More than 100 delegates of international trade union organizations and various trade unions of the world gathered to discuss new challenges in the modern labour market, including the issues of the digital revolution, the crisis of democracy and other globalization trends.

During the discussions, special emphasis is placed on the need to consolidate inter-state efforts to increase the potential of the trade union movement.

CGIL General Secretary Susanna Kamuso, leaving her post, encouraged The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and the international trade union movement as a whole to strengthen its influence at the international level by including new members around the world. This, she said, would enable the ITUC to become a platform for fighting for workers ‘ rights against the growing power of transnational companies.

During his working visit to Italy, Chairman of the Federation of trade unions of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Abdirayim held a number of meetings, during which the possibilities of cooperation between the trade unions of Kazakhstan and Malaysia were discussed.
