About the CWC
A joint initiative of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), the Global Union Federations (GUF), and the Trade Union Advisory Committee to the OECD (TUAC), we are an international labour union network for dialogue and action on the responsible investment of workers’ capital.
We work with teachers, steelworkers, transport and healthcare workers to build a community of practice that upholds fundamental labour rights in the investment chain and to ensure that workers’ capital does not undermine workers’ rights.
Asset Manager Accountability Initiative
We shift the balance of power in the investment chain to increase the accountability of asset managers toward asset owners in relation to fundamental labour rights in investments.
We support pension fund trustees and strengthen collaboration among national trustee networks to develop a community of practice and to drive sustainability in investments.
Global Labour Rights Campaigns
We amplify global trade union labour rights campaigns by activating investors to mitigate adverse impacts in public and private market investments.
We identify strategic opportunities to weigh into consultations and improve the incorporation of trade union priorities in the sustainable finance agenda.
The CWC drives trade union and fundamental labour rights priorities into the investment chain. We convene trustees, promote asset manager accountability, raise awareness around labour rights and advocate to shape key standards.
