In this council meeting, the targets of the ITUC Count Us In! Campaign was recalled and ITUC-AP recognized the increasing involvement and participation of women in trade union programs at various levels and concrete improvement in their representation in the ITUC-AP governing bodies. This progress, however, has yet to be translated into more women taking up positions at a national level.
ITUC-AP reaffirms its commitment to continuing and fully implementing the related resolutions that gear towards achieving balanced representation of the sexes within trade unions at all levels elsewhere. They also call upon affiliates to sign up for the Count Us In! Campaign, submit action plans, and commit resources, believing that affiliates can and should be the leader in advancing women’s leadership.
