The meeting discussed the very many issues on which the two national trade union organsiations are in full agreement and agreed to hold more regular bilateral meetings to continue discussions on other matters. The meeting was characterized by frank, open and robust discussions in the best traditions of workers’ organisations and in a spirit of constructive considerations and comradeship.

The meeting underlined that current rates of unemployment, poverty and inequality, in particular as they affect women and youth constitute a ticking time in both Turkey and Somalia, and require the mobilisation of all progressive forces, with the labour movement as the leading motive force to address this challenge.

The two trade union organisations resolved to stand shoulder-to-shoulder, in the struggle to deepen and defend trade union rights and to end the exploitation of workers. They realized the importance of building sectoral bilateral linkages amongst the affiliates of the two collaborating federations and the meeting decided to actively promote the forging of such ties. These shall include union-to-union and worker-to-worker exchanges; joint conferences; exchanges of information and perspectives, which shall be encouraged by HAK-İŞ and FESTU.

The bilateral stressed the need for increased organising of young workers and women in the trade unions, and building their capacities for leadership. The two organisations shall develop women and youth development programmes, which shall ensure that more young workers and women are active in the building of inclusive and democratic unions across the two national trade union formations.

HAK-İŞ and FESTU agreed to work together to strengthen trade union organization and political work of FESTU. This immediate task includes twinning FESTU-HAK-İŞ affiliated unions, strengthening functional capacity of FESTU, supporting FESTU’s efforts to ensure democratic worker control of trade unions, quality service to members, shop steward training and education with regard to national and international issues.

The meeting considered it very critical for FESTU and HAK-İŞ to formulate a strategic political framework for the two organizations’ engagement, towards building independent and strong trade union movement and defending the interests of workers, within and with the International Trade Unions Confederation (ITUC), European Trade Unions Confederation (ETUC) and African Regional Organization of International Trade Unions Confederation (ITUC-Africa).
