This session is part of a series of 2-hour virtual meetings "Pandemic and Beyond: Workers Organizing for a Public Future" held during July, August and September 2020.

This second session of the series helps prepare for the Global Trade Union Assembly’s thematic discussions and frame the issues that are to be explored.

Unions understand that the multi-dimensional crisis set off by the coronavirus presents our movement with opportunities to organize for a “public future”—one that establishes an economy that puts need before profit, advances equality and can tackle the existential dangers of climate instability and ecosystem collapse.
