The Covid-19 pandemic, digitalization, climate change, right-wing populism, and rising authoritarianism have changed the world of work.
In this 2022 edition of the GLU-Conference hosted by Penn State University, AFL-CIO, International Center for Development and Decent Work (ICDD) and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES), we analyze these developments and ask how we build anew our workplaces and societies based on social justice.
In GLU’s unique blend of academic work and trade union activism, we offer discussions in 7 tracks on inclusive social protection; ending gender-based violence and racism at work; worker organizing for a just transition; organizing workers in and across the platform economy; empowering migrant workers; workers' rights under rising authoritarianism; global supply chains and collaboration of academics and trade unionists
