The main task of the International Officer is to identify International Trade Union issues and causes where SEPA UNISON can provide solidarity and support. Trade unionists in many other countries risk intimidation and even death for active membership in a union. Solidarity - joining together with others who share a common interest - is the very basis of trade unionism, and it doesn’t stop at national borders.
