AAWL learned the concepts of building International Industrial Action and Solidarity through communication, exchange visits and joint projects with our solidarity partners over many years.

More recently we have used the name Global Picketline to identify and promote coordinated campaigns of International Industrial Action and Solidarity.

These are some important labour movement organisations and structures that organise international workers’ solidarity:

Labourstart – Daily labour news in more than 20 languages
ITUC– International Trade Union Confederation
WFTU– World Federation of Trade Unions
IUF – International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers
ITF – International Transport Workers’ Federation
IDC – International Dockworkers Council
IFJ – International Federation of Journalists
