Education and Training

UNICOF organizes training and education for its members on topics which affect their work as well as their lives. We have a department dedicated to the development of our members in this regard.

Trade unions throughout the world are facing daily, new challenges through the acquisition of new skills and responsibilities. Globalization has brought rapid changes in the world of work. Workers representatives are being called upon to participate in decision making of the work place hence the role of trade unions have become much broader with the service we render becoming more complex. To successfully cope with the new issues in the world of work, time has come for an ever-increasing range of technical and professional knowledge and skills and this calls on the education department to work hard towards this direction.

Today, trade unions and their education programmes cannot ignore the consequences of Economic globalization on workplace issues as demand for decent work, the fight against discrimination and exploitation and violation of human rights cannot be over emphasized.
