Climate Change, Labor Standards, Migration and Unions: What will the Future of Work Look Like? 

Alison Tate is undertaking a fellowship at the Transnational NGO Initiative from March 17th-28th. In her talk, she will share the challenges of labor unions and how they appear in strategies and priorities of the international union movement. What role can alliances with civil society play in finding solutions to the many intersecting issues relevant to the future world of work?

She has served as a consultant/expert to a number of international development and human rights NGOs and with the Better Work program of the ILO and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), advising on trade union capacity building and labour standards compliance. Alison is a member of the board of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI). Alison has degrees in economics and political science. 

The International Trade Union Confederation, based in Brussels, represents 175 million workers in 156 countries and has 315 national labor union affiliates.

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
