It is with deep sadness that the world family of the WFTU says goodbye to its committed militant, comrade Ramon Cardona Nuevo.
Comrade Ramon carried out his tasks with diligence, efficiency and tirelessness in favor of the international trade union movement in every corner of the planet.
A trade union cadre of the heroic CTC, member of the WFTU Secretariat from 2000 to 2011, permanent representative of the WFTU to the ILO for six years, head of the WFTU Office in Geneva, Switzerland and then head of the Regional Office of the WFTU in Latin America and the Caribbean.
He has stood out for his internationalism and his faith in the ideals of the Working Class, as well as for the defense of the Cuban Revolution.
As a leader and cadre of the WFTU, he has given great and successful battles within international organizations, during a period when the world correlation of forces was negative for the peoples and workers. He supported the militant renewal and reconstruction of the WFTU, being one of the first to offer all his strength to the new path of the WFTU which started at the 15th World Trade Union Congress, held in Havana, in December 2005.
We express our sincerest and deepest condolences to his family and the CTC.
His photo will be placed in the meeting room of the WFTU Secretariat.
Soon we will collectively decide on the tribute he deserves.
He will always be remembered.
