The ASU endorses the international action week by the ITF (International Transport Workers' Federation) that aims to raise awareness of workplace issues for transport workers. We encourage ASU Branches and members to participate in events. The ASU is an affiliate of the ITF.
Take action! 2013 Action Week
During the week 7-13 October 2013, unions and their members will come together to take part in the ITF Action Week.
Under the slogan "Transport Workers Fighting Back! Organising Globally!" unions will organise a variety of activities to highlight important issues that affect road transport and railway workers and to emphasize the importance of belonging to a union.
This Action Week in 2013 marks the continuation of the ITF International Road Transport Action Week campaign. The decision to continue the Action Week campaign and to merge the railway workers' Action Day, traditionally held in March/April with the annual October event, was endorsed by the ITF Road Transport Workers' Section Conference and the ITF Railway Workers' Section Conference held in Toronto in November 2012.
We invite all road transport and railway workers including passenger and freight, mobile and non-mobile workers to participate.
