From Bangladesh to Burma and throughout Asia, the AFL-CIO assists workers in their struggles to form unions and maintain them. In Burma, trade unions are trying to register new unions under a recently passed labor law. In Bangladesh, workers in shrimp processing plants are seeking to improve their working conditions.
In a live webcast today, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka will discuss U.S. trade policy and American workers. The address and follow-up discussion will begin at 12:15 p.m. EDT from the Peterson Institute for International Economics. The webcast will be available here.
