STATEMENT BY INDEPENDENT ORGANISATIONS



Our expectations were high when, in January 2005, in Porto Alegre, the ICFTU and WCL general secretaries publicly launched, before the World Trade Union Forum, the process of unification of the international trade union movement. The planned creation of a new international trade union organisation – following the dissolution of the ICFTU and the WCL, and the uniting of their current affiliates together with organisations as yet without any international affiliation – rekindled the hope of putting an end to some 60 years of divisions and conflict in the world trade union movement.
