Building solidarity with Iraqi workers

LFIQ continues to develop links with the trade union movement in the UK with a view to building solidarity between British and Iraqi trade unions.
Chair of LFIQ, Clive Furness attended the conference of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers in April 2009 to build on links with activists and officials in the ATL.
Discussions ranged around how the ATL might offer practical support in the form of training and equipment for the teaching unions in Iraq to how they might engage in solidarity activities over issues of concern where unions in Iraq find their freedom of action under threat.
