Defending dock workers fundamental rights

Justice for Dock Workers is an ITF campaign supporting affiliates and their members at terminals globally in their negotiations to improve their welfare and working conditions. The ITF is working side by side with local unions to ensure decent working conditions for all dock workers.

We will continue to campaign relentlessly – globally – to give a voice to dock workers whose right have been denied.
