May Day – Workers along supply chains: why international solidarity matters

April 26, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


In today’s globalised economy, the products we use and consume often pass through multiple countries before reaching our hands. However, the workers who make these products are too often exploited and underpaid, working in unsafe and inhumane conditions.

International solidarity and fair trade practices can make a difference in improving the lives of these workers. By advocating for better working conditions and supporting fair trade products, we can create a more equitable and sustainable global economy.

Join our virtual May Day celebration, featuring a distinguished panel of speakers who will share their experiences and insights on the challenges facing workers along supply chains and the power of international solidarity in creating a better future for all.



Panel speakers (final details to be confirmed):

  • Host: Melissa Ansell-Bridges – Council of Trade Unions New Zealand
  • Rachel Dobrić – Oxfam Aotearoa, What She Makes campaign
  • Thai Global Workers Union
  • Dennis Maga – FIRST Union
  • Hon Phil Twyford – Labour Party MP
