Sharan Burrow, General Secretary of the ITUC: Please call for a Global Strike to implement the 4 Hour Work-Day Worldwide

This petition had 680 supporters


We urge Sharan Burrow, General Secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation, the largest Union of the world with aproximately 175 million members, to incorporate in the international labor movement, the fight for the 4 Hour Work-Day and to call for a peaceful and democratic Gobal Strike to achieve this historic victory.

We keep hearing about budget cuts and austerity to get out of this economic hole, when in reality that will just make things worse. Reducing the work day to 4 hours, WITHOUT REDUCING INCOME, will provide a solution to the world economic crisis by achieving full employment and increase aggregate demand, which will make the engines of the economy move again. Full employment will also end poverty, by giving everyone the possibility of finding a job with decent income. It will also stabilize the rate of profit for businesses and will also lead the path into No-Growth economic model, which our environment desperately needs.

You can learn more about the 4 Hour Work-Day by visiting www.4hourworkday.org and the Facebook page. There are many benefits that a 4 hour work-day will bring not only to the economy and the environment, but also to increase leisure and improve the quality of life and psychological well-being of the population.

In solidarity,

The 4 Hour Work-Day Campaign
