PSI will organize some side events during the ILC, including:

  • The Route of Shame;
  • A panel on “Collective bargaining in the Municipal Sector – Experience of the Province of Buenos Aires (Argentina)”, on Tuesday 6 June (more information soon).

Participation:

We urge you to contact your national trade union centres and make sure that you are part of your national delegation, so that the public sector will be well represented at this ILC, since issues of interest and relevance for all PSI affiliates will be discussed.

Make sure to request your visa well in advance, if needed. Please note that PSI cannot assist you with this procedure.

Please contact PSI before 1 May 2017 to confirm that you will be part of your national delegation. We count on your support and participation, both before and during the conference to make the voices of public sector workers heard!
