International Transport Federation calls for Action on Illegal Israeli Settlements

The International Transport Federation (ITF) passed a resolution at its 42ndMexico meeting, calling on transport workers to stop ‘providing services’ to illegal Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The resolution calls on ITF to ‘take action against multinational companies providing transportation to settlements’.
 
The ITF represents 759 unions, with over 4,600,000 transport workers in 155 countries.
 
The resolution was tabled by the Palestinian General Federation of Trade Unions (PGFTU) and seconded by the RMT - the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers.
 
RMT General Secretary and PSC patron, Bob Crow, said the vote was unanimous, with full support from all represented unions including railway and shipping unions.
