Juan Somavia (ILO) - Social movements, the future of labour and our society

We are living in an era of great disquiet - protests emerge and need to become movements in order to create global consciousness, which then change policies and social models. In the last decades the womens' movement has had extraordinary influence; but in the world of work wages are still lower, participation in management and even in union leadership is very low. We need an accelerator here, with more participation and presence of women: the collective capacity of women to contribute to society is essential. Other movements have been around, from the human rights and environmental ones, to the social justice, which has been emerging as we move into a new era. The practical implications of having societies which are more fair and respectful of work, the environment, the right of people of organize themselves, live together in communities.Why doesn't this happen? Because we're living under an economic vision managed by financial interest. The change will only come bottom-up and with the capacity of transforming the desire to change into global consciousness, and new political leadership… who dares to lead, who dares to change. Persistence is the way. It depends on us.

Interview with the Director-General of the ILO (International Labour Organisation - UN) for Terra Futura (Firenze 25-27 May, 2012)The roots of the trade union movement need to be re-discovered and integrated with the demands emerging from society. Where are the jobs going to come from in the world of today? Mainly from small enterprises, who create real jobs and economy. There is a space for an important renewed role of trade-unionism, listening to what social movements and workers have to say.
