Saturday morning quick updates

  • Last week we published our first news story in Tamil.
  • We’ve been in touch with our comrades in Tbilisi and have been assured that our Georgian language edition will go live next week.
  • We’re expecting the translation into Hindi to be ready in the next few days.
  • Our front page in Turkish now includes graphical links to all the country’s national trade union centers as well as two pro-labour NGOs we’ve been working with – and they’ve all been informed of this.  One of the centers (DISK) has discussed ways to cooperate with us.  Meanwhile, a very large number of Turkish trade unionists have signed up to use UnionBook.
  • The ITF has called for a global day of action in support of Turkey’s TUMTIS union which is locked in dispute with UPS – we may need to launch a big online campaign in another week or two.
  • We have a new newswire – USA labour news stories in Spanish.
  • We stopped submissions to our Labour Photo of the Year competition and the judges are currently preparing a shortlist.
  • I’ve begun work in earnest on our iPhone/iPad app.
  • We’ve asked correspondents to help our comrades in Egypt (at CTUWS) who are looking for books to translate into Arabic – they’ve begun with one that was a LabourStart book of the week.
