A new global union alliance formed of unions based in DP World terminals is looking to improve standards in health and safety, automation and contract labour.

According to International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF), the ITF DP World global union alliance is setting out its first series of objectives during ITF dockers’ conference in Cape Town, South Africa this week.

“This alliance is part of our ongoing response to global multinationals that behave differently depending on whey are operating in the world,” Paddy Crumlin, ITF president and dockers’ section chair, said.

“We are standing up to say that whether you’re in India, Canada, South America or the UK, union busting activities will not be tolerated and there is a global network of unions ready to demonstrate that,” Crumlin added.

The alliance includes 17 unions organising in DP World terminals across the globe.
