today's workplace: the employee rights blog
Celebrate International Human Rights Day by Promoting Workplace Rights: Today, Wednesday, December 10, is the annual observance of International Human Rights Day. This day commemorates the 1948 ratification of the Universal Declaration for Human Rights. One of the many rights guaranteed by this document is the right of workers to form a union and collectively bargain with their employers. That is why the union movement has selected this day to promote workers' rights to unionize, which seems to be constantly under assault, and has scheduled a number of activities designed to promote workplace unionization. We hope that you will support these efforts in any way that you can today.
