New campaign launched in support of Marlboro workers in Turkey

Turkey Marlboro campaign: This campaign is going live this weekend. Thanks to DISK’s efforts, we already have 384 supporters, most of them for the Turkish version.

Philippines campaign: This campaign finally went live globally this week, and already has 2,875 supporters, and appears in 4 languages with more on the way. One of these is Greek, for which we now have a volunteer translator.

Canada campaign: Our campaign in support of locked-out actors already has 6,253 supporters, making it larger than four other current campaigns.

2023 conference: Eric Lee will be in Tbilisi this coming week to meet with meet with partners and supporters and to choose the venue. We hope to hold our Global Solidarity Conference in late April next year.

Arthur Svensson international prize for trade union rights: Nominations are now open for this important prize, which LabourStart won in 2016, and we’ve publicised it very widely in our mass mailings and across social media and our news page.

New campaigns launched in support of workers in the Philippines, Canada

Apologies for the delay in posting this update.

Philippines campaign: We just launched a new campaign in support of workers’ rights in the Philippines, at the request of the KMU.

Canada campaign: We launched a campaign in support of 28,000 locked out actors — initially it was Canada-only, but we’ve now gone global with it and it has over 5,000 supporters already.

Global Solidarity Conference 2023: Eric will be visiting Tbilisi in another 11 days and will meet with local trade unions and other partners, and visit possible venues for the event.

Radio Labour: For some reason, the feed of their latest stories had disappeared from our home page. This has now been fixed.

Translators: We wrote to all 89 volunteer translators on International Translation Day (29 September) to thank them for all they do.
