Privacy statement


On its website www.justtransition.cnvinternationaal.nl, CNV Internationaal offers a wealth of information about its activities aimed at promoting decent work in developing countries. CNV Internationaal promotes decent work by strengthening the position of workers in the formal and informal economy. We do do this by focusing on three main themes: bolstering the social dialogue, 2 ) strengthening labour rights in the international production chains, and 3 ) promoting (youth) employment. 

CNV Internationaal is part of CNV Vakcentrale and currently supports trade union activities in 14 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America. In these areas local trade union organisations also fight for improving the position and rights of working men and women. But working conditions in those countries are often much harder, while financial resources are limited. That is why CNV Internationaal supports their commitment to decent work.

CNV Internationaal deploys lobbying and campaign activities to promote the activities of trade union partners in the political and business arena, among the Dutch audience, and of course among members of CNV unions. CNV aims to raise awareness and engagement, and receive financial support.

Of course it is easy to become a donor or make a one-time donation on the site.
