In our globally interconnected world, companies are now structured at a global level where they integrate their production, storage, transport and retail arms over many different countries in a never ending quest for the highest profits.
Workers have had difficulty in countering this strategy by companies and also organizing at a global level. The Global Picket Line is a new concept that aims to overcome this weakness.
Asia Pacific Current interviewed Manrico Moro, Australia Asia Worker Links' Co-ordinator, and a campaign co-ordinator on the International Committee of the Global Picket Line, on how this concept and framework came about, and how it can be used to strenghten workers power around the world.
Asia Pacific Currents provides updates of labour struggles and campaigns from the Asia Pacific region. It is produced by Australia Asia Worker Links, in the studio of 3CR Radio in Melbourne, Australia
