CTUWS founder Kamal Abbas addressing the meeting.

I just returned from a three-day visit to Cairo as the guest of the Center for Trade Union and Worker Services, an NGO which for 20 years has fought to create independent and democratic trade unions in Egypt.

I’ll be writing up a full report for my blog, but from a strictly LabourStart point of view this was a very important trip. Followup will include:

Recruiting new correspondents in Egypt
Creating a special Egypt news page with links
Reinvigorating our Arabic language page
Arranging for Egyptian trade unionists to attend our conference in July
Doing joint campaigns with the CTUWS
