The WFTU General Secretary made an official visit to Rome on May 17 and 18, 2011 at the invitation of USB.
During the visit important bilateral discussions were held on the importance of 16th World Trade Union Congress held in Athens, on the state of the class oriented trade union movement in Europe, the role of TNC’s and the need to strengthen the sectoral organizations of WFTU.
The discussions took place in a brotherly spirit and the optimist prevailed that the fraternal relations between USB and WFTU will become closer.
The USB is a combative, democratic, class oriented trade union base organization with organizations and affiliates throughout Italy, led by a serious and very active leadership.
In the next period a USB delegation will visit the WFTU Headquarters in Athens for further discussions.
