Global Labour Remunicipalisation workshop

A growing body of research and documentation shows that cities, communities, and in some cases states, are increasingly bringing back public services from private to public ownership due to the failure of privatization to keep its promises in term of cost effectiveness, service quality and user access. PSI recently held a workshop bringing together trade unions and allies from around the world to share experiences of remunicipalisation and strategies for bringing public services back in-house.

Twenty young African trade unions leaders gathered to discuss remunicipalisation

Twenty young African trade unions leaders gathered in Abuja recently to discuss remunicipalization, PSI reports. “This meeting was the opportunity to discuss collectively the many reasons why it is key to defend the public ownership of essential municipal services, how to ensure fair public procurement processes and why it is in everyone’s interest to reclaim them for the public whenever they are contracted out to the private sector. Profit-oriented service procurement is not compatible with the general interest and the young trade union leaders uncovered many reasons why essential service privatization does not work for people.”
