Local and regional governments (LRG)/municipal sector workers run essential services in cities, metropolitan areas and territories servicing millions of people and communities every day. Our members work in public administrations
; public utilities such as water and sanitation
, electricity, and solid waste. They operate public transport and maintain public spaces; work in social, culture and education services
such as libraries, museums, kindergartens, schools and universities. They are health and social services workers
. Firefighters, emergency, medical first responders and municipal police
are also among LRG/municipal workers. PSI defends and promotes the union and labour rights
of LRG/municipal workers and advocates their decent working and living conditions so that they can sustainably deliver accessible, quality public services to the local communities and territories they serve and successfully confront the many challenges posed by rapid urbanization and globalization.
