The TUI of P&R of the World Federation of Trade Unions and Retired Employees Association Nepal (REAN), these last in its condition of host, invite all the P&R in their trade unions and/or the class organizations to participate in the Asian and Oceanian´s Regional Conference of the TUI of Pensioners and Retirees, that will take place in Kathmandu, Nepal, December 3rd. 2016 (arrival at Kathmandu´s airport on the 2th of December, and departure on the December 4th), in order to create and establish the Regional Structure of Asia and Oceania of the TUI of Pensioners and Retirees (P&R) of the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU).
The creation of this regional structure of the TUI of P&R of the WFTU is included in the Statutes of this TUI that were approved in the foundational Congress celebrated in Barcelona (February 2014), and it shows the ascendancy of the class oriented trade unions’ movement, and it emphasizes the positive direction of the WFTU and of Asian and Oceanian’s Pensioners and Retirees.
Today we live in a period of profound crisis of the capitalist system. The capital and the capitalist governments try to put the load of this crisis on the backs of the workers and on the back of the peoples, a fact with a disastrous impact for all the workers of every sector, but also for the P&R. The Pensioners and Retirees see their pensions and their rights diminish, see how their lives and the lives of their children are continually deteriorating. The P&R of all Asia and Oceania have to act with the proletarian internationalism that characterizes the WFTU, and have to fight so the right to a public pension that allows us to live with dignity becomes a reality anywhere in our continent. We are going to fight for the reinforcement of free health and free medicines, for a public and free social security, for public and worthy pensions.
Every organization that confirms its participation will receive a schedule with the details of its participation in the Conference. As in every international event organized by the WFTU (the only world trade union organization that doesn´t receives any funds or subsidies from any government), every participant will pay for its own trip. The lodging of one (1) delegate and the meals of this delegate for two (2) days will be provided by the hosts. Supplementary delegates will be accepted if they pay for the cost of their lodging and meals while in Nepal. Due to the financial difficulties, we ask, from those participants who can afford it, to pay for their stay in Kathmandu, as a token of internationalist solidarity.
Those delegates who need a visa to enter in Nepal must inform, during the month of October 2016 as the latest, of their names and their post of responsibility in their Trade Union, so the organizers can send them the personal invitation letter from Nepal with time enough.
Dear fellows, we invite you to participate in the Asian and Oceanian’s Regional Conference of the TUI of P&R and to cooperate with your participation and proposals so this is a success of class oriented Trade Unionism.
