A new 1st of May

The world is at its most challenging time in modern history. Faced with the difficulties of a block of cultural, technological and economic transformations, since the beginning of last year, it has been presented with a dramatic pandemic that involves almost all countries and spreads pain, fear and death. A harsh context that imposes on the union struggle a new way of seeing priorities, problems and solutions.

There is a reality that has appeared to us absolutely unique and unexpected, demanding from us, on this date of such strong symbolism for the workers of the world, the ability to build different understandings when reflecting on the moment. Although historical problems have not yet been overcome, new guidelines have been added, which recommend a rearticulation of forces and intelligences to be inserted in the debate that has always taken place with entrepreneurs.

The fight for better wages, job security and decent general working conditions must remain strong and, as it always has been, in line with priorities. It turns out that it must add to a set of needs added by the post-pandemic world, in which, more than ever, health care for workers must be at the forefront.

A happy and optimistic May Day to all of us.

About WOW

WOW was founded as a Social Christian trade union and finds inspiration in the spiritual believe that man and universe were created by God or by persuasions coinciding with that. The increase of intercultural contacts provided opportunities for the WOW to expand and broaden its view with visions of other religious backgrounds. WOW does so in a joint attempt to build a world community based on freedom, dignity, justice and solidarity.
