On October 7 2008 the while trade union movement is organising a World Day for Decent Work, through the ITUC. Unions and organisations campaigning for Decent Work all around the world will run events involving a large number of people and a wide range of activities. Look out for activities coming to Second Life too, through Union Island.

It’s a crucial cause that goes right to the heart of trade unionism. Every person on earth should be able to have a job that enables them to live a good life in which their basic needs are met. Employment is a crucial factor for achieving this. This is why all governments should be urged to work more on job creation. Not just any jobs, of course, but decent jobs for everybody.
