Joint report on meetings between the international trade union movement (Global Unions and WCL) and the IMF and World Bank 21-23 October 2002, Washington (Inglês)

This paper documents that an international delegation of 89 trade union leaders, of whom 36 were the president or general secretary of their organization (see list attached), took part in three days of meetings with the heads, executive directors and various staff member of the IMF and World Bank. A number of follow-up steps were agreed to including tracking and encouraging trade union involvement in national PRSP processes; technical meetings on pension reform and labor market reform; and further exploration of joint work between the Bank and unions to combat HIV/AIDS. The Bank also offered to have 3 - 4 trade union representatives seconded to the World Bank for a few months to work jointly with Bank staff on issues or projects to be determined. Trade union inputs to future IMF policy developments, such as design of a new debt restructuring mechanism and measures to limit the negative impact of sudden changes in international capital flows were welcomed.
