Latin America | DIVERSITY | TRADE UNIONS

“We’re here. We just want an opportunity”

This LGBTI pride month, Rel-UITA (IUF Latin America) launched “Trade Unions and Diversity,” a video series featuring first-person accounts of workers from the LGBTI community who describe their experiences in the labor movement.

In the video that opens the series, Gisele Adão, global vice-president of the IUF’s LGBTI Workers’ Committee and leader of the Union of Food Workers of Criciúma and the Region (SINTIACR), tells us how they carry out their trade union activities focusing on the inclusion of LGBTI people and how social struggles for rights are so intertwined that joining them together becomes a social necessity.

Watch the video and hear everything she has to say. And be sure to share it with your contacts.
