This workshop, organised with the support of the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), contributes to PSI’s work in building union capacity to advocate for tax justice and to influence global tax policy through advocacy at national and global levels.

Participants include trade union leaders and activists from PSI’s two affiliates in Jamaica; the trade union national centre in Jamaica and from selected Caribbean countries. Scott Chamberlain from PSI affiliate the Association of Canadian Financial Officers (ACFO) will participate, highlighting his union’s experiences in the KPMG, Isle of Man case.

The workshop seeks to drill down and unpack the issues from national and Caribbean-wide perspectives, while making important linkages to global campaigns.

At the end of the workshop, participants will:

  • understand the important role of trade unions in effectively influencing national, regional and international tax policy;
  • have agreed on clear policy positions on tax justice;
  • have developed plans for campaign work on the issues;
  • have recommended strategies to collaborate with private sector unions and civil society.
