International union leader calls on G20 to improve lives of working families.


Sharan Burrow, General Secretary of International Trade Union Confederation, will speak at the G20 rally on November 15. The ITUC represents 125 million workers across 125 countries.

Sharan Burrow, who will also participate in Labour 20, has called for a focus on jobs and wages at this November’s G20 leader’s summit.

“G20 leaders must prioritise jobs, wages and social protection to kick start the global economy and afford justice to working families.”

“The Labour 20 represents working people and calls on governments to take a courageous stand against the increasing American corporate model that is destroying the social balance in the global economy” said Sharan Burrow, General Secretary, International Trade Union Confederation.

The rally will assemble at 11am November 15 2014 at Emma Miller Place (Roma St) and subsequently march past the G20 summit to Musgrave Park.
