Congress 2014: daily digest, 10 August

Quotes from congress today:

Guy Ryder, ILO director-general

“You are working, as the ITF has always done, at the cutting edge of trade union internationalism. From the very beginning, transport workers have been leaders in global workers’ solidarity.”

Professor Georgi Bliznashki, Bulgarian prime minister

“It is of paramount importance that the ITF supports the UN and all organisations that seek peace and social justice, and the congress slogan – From global crisis to global justice: transport workers fighting back – is proof of that willingness. Solidarity in the struggle for social justice is paramount and a noble fight.”

Paddy Crumlin, ITF president

“Everything we do is essential to the quality of human life – we are running the trains and buses and airplanes, our dock workers are moving goods. We are in the fishing industry. We are everywhere and we demand justice!”
